Make an appointment with an Oxnard College Counselor to discuss your eligibility for the following:
An eligible student may petition to disregard a maximum of 24 semester units (within 5 semesters) of courses with grades of "D" and "F" from their cumulative GPA.
An eligible may petition to replace their grade with an excused withdrawal (EW). An EW will not negatively impact academic/progress standing. Note: Please consult with the Financial Aid Office.
A course in which a grade of “C” or better has been earned may not be repeated except as identified in the catalog course description. Courses taken at any college in which a grade of D, F, NC or substandard grade has been earned may be repeated for the purpose of improving a recorded grade. In such a case the higher grade will replace the substandard grade in the cumulative GPA.
