The SMCCD has established related courses with similar educational activities (See
#2 below.) Although a course cannot be repeated, a student may attempt up to four
related courses. This limitation applies even if the student receives a substandard
grade (i.e., D+, D, D-, F, NP, NC) or a “W.” Enrollment limitations are monitored
district wide for related courses.
Students may attempt active participatory courses in physical education/kinesiology,
and visual or performing arts where the course objectives are met by repeating a similar
primary educational activity and an expanded educational experience occurs each time
the course is attempted for the following reasons:
The student’s skills or proficiencies will be enhanced by supervised repetition and
practice within class periods and
Active participatory experience in individualized study or group assignments is the
method to learn the objectives.
