Academic Renewal Policy and Procedures

The Academic Renewal Policy (BP 4240) for the Coast Community College District is issued pursuant to Title 5 Section 55046 of the California Administrative Code of Regulations. The purpose of this policy is to disregard past substandard academic performance of students when such work is not reflective of their current demonstrated ability. It is based on the recognition that due to unusual circumstances, or circumstances beyond the students’ control, the past substandard work will negatively affect their academic standing and unnecessarily prolong the rate at which they complete their current objectives. For information on how to petition for academic renewal, please consult with a counselor. The Academic Renewal Procedure, AP 4240, can be found at: https://www.cccd.edu/_assets/documents/board/BP/AP_4240_Academic_Renewal.pdf.
