Assessment

LATTC offers a self-paced computerized assessment placement test. Students receive an assessment summary that may be used to select their courses and to plan their educational and career goals. Course recommendations are advisory and should be discussed with a counselor.

The Assessment Center provides services to complete the Prerequisite/ Co-Requisite Challenge Exams and course prerequisite/co-requisites clearances. The assessment Center offers Accuplacer for English and math placement “Tests of Adult Basic Education (TABE)” non-credit courses. This test will measure the student’s grade level in Language, Math and Reading. This is not a pass/fail test. This is a timed test. Testing is available through department referral. Please see the Assessment Center for further information.

Assessment Testing Policy

All students that have taken the Assessment test will be allowed to retest once a term, not to exceed four times a year; as long as they have not completed a course in either the corresponding Math or English course sequence. All test scores are valid for 2 years.

Please be prepared as retesting policies are strictly enforced and are subject to change. Assessment placement results from other California Community Colleges are accepted within the last two years.

[Back to Top]

 

Counseling

After participation in the assessment placement process, students will meet in a group with counselors and receive an abbreviated student educational plan.

All students should meet with a counselor during the semester to develop a comprehensive student educational plan. All students who have not declared an educational goal and students who are enrolled in pre-collegiate basic skills courses are highly encouraged to meet with a counselor to develop a student educational plan.

Attendance

(e.g. administrative withdrawals, tardiness)

Only students who have been admitted to the college and are in approved active status may attend classes.

Students should attend every meeting of all classes for which they register. To avoid being dropped from class, students should contact the instructor when they are absent for emergency reasons.

LATTC Student Attendance Policy

  1. An instructor may exclude a student who is absent for more hours than the class meets per week or 20% of the total class hours.
  2. In addition, an instructor may equate three or more late arrivals or early departures from class as an absence for purposes of class attendance.
  3. Student attendance expectations including this policy must be clearly indicated on the Course Syllabus. Instructors must apply their attendance policy in a consistent manner.

Please Note: Students who are pre-registered in a class and miss the first meeting may lose their right to a place in the class.

Students are responsible for dropping a class that they stop attending. If the class is not dropped, the student may receive an “F” in that class and be responsible for enrollment fee. Any drops or exclusions that occur between the 4th week and the 12th week will result in a “W” on the student’s record. Drops are not permitted beyond the 12th week. A grade (“A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, “F”, “INC”, “P”, or “NP”) will be assigned to students who are enrolled past the 12th week even if they stop attending class. For further details, refer to “W” section of “Grading Symbols and Definitions.”

[Back to Top]

 

Withdrawals

official and unofficial, drop/add policy

Students wishing to drop one or more classes must do so through the online registration system, at www.lattc.edu.

It is the student’s responsibility to officially drop from class through the website or in person. Students must drop by the end of the second week of semester-length classes to avoid fees. Any drops or exclusions that occur after the no penalty drop date (under last day to drop without a “W”) and up to 75% of the time the class is scheduled will result in a “W” on the student’s record which will be included in the determination of progress probation. Withdrawals are not permitted beyond 75% of class meeting time.

A grade (A, B, C, D, F, P, INC, or NP) will be assigned to students who are enrolled past the last day to drop even if they stop attending class, except in cases of extenuating circumstances. After the last day to drop students may withdraw from class upon petition demonstrating extenuating circumstances and after consultation with the appropriate faculty.

Course Repeats

Course Repetition to Improve Sub-standard Grades

No specific course or categories of courses shall be exempt from course repetition. This policy applies to courses taken at colleges within the Los Angeles Community College District. Courses completed through the provisions of Board Rule 6704 – Credit by examination may not be used to remove a substandard grade.

First Course Repetition to Remove a Sub-standard Grade

Upon completion of a repeated course the highest grade earned will be computed in the accumulated grade point average and the student’s academic record so annotated. All grades awarded will show on student’s permanent records to insure a true and complete academic history. It is the student’s responsibility to file a petition for removal of the substandard grade.

Second Course Repetition to Remove a Sub-standard Grade

Upon completion of the second repetition, the grade used in computing the student’s cumulative grade point average shall be the highest grade earned, and the student’s record so annotated. The two lower substandard grades will not be used in the computation of the grade point average. All grades awarded will show on student’s permanent records to insure a true and complete academic history. It is the student’s responsibility to file a petition for removal of the substandard grade.

Third Course Repetition to Remove a Sub-standard Grade

A student may repeat the same course for a third time provided the student has:

  1. Received two substandard grades for the same district course
  2. Filed a petition specifying the course(s) to be repeated and stating the extenuating circumstances upon which the petition is based. “Extenuating circumstances” are verified cases of accidents, illness, or other circumstances beyond the control of the student.
  3. The petition is approved by the Department Chairperson, if denied, petition is forwarded to Dean for review.

Upon completing the third repeat, the grade earned will not be used in the computation of the grade point average. All grades awarded will show on student’s permanent records to insure a true and complete academic history.

Course Repetition: Special Circumstances

Repetition of courses for which substandard work (less than “C”) has not been recorded shall be permitted only upon advance petition of the student and with written permission of the College President or designee based on a finding that circumstances exist which justify such repetition. In such repetition under special circumstances, the student’s permanent academic record shall be annotated in such a manner that all work remains legible. Grades awarded for repetition under special circumstances shall not be counted in calculating a student’s grade-point average.

NO FOURTH REPEAT UNLESS MILITARY SERVICE OR NATURAL DISASTER.

Campus Procedure

Student will be notified of an Administrative Exclusion from a class if the student is enrolled in a class under above circumstances and has not filed a petition in advance and received approval. In this case the student may file a petition to repeat under special circumstances in the Student Services Building, JH-Lobby following receipt of a Drop notice.

Course Repetition and Activity Repetition

Certain courses in the Catalog may be repeated for additional unit credit. These courses, marked “RPT” in the Course Section of the Catalog, allow the student an expanded educational experience each time the student enrolls in the course. Enrollment in these courses is limited in any similar activity to a maximum of three repeats for a total of four (4) enrollments, regardless of the repeatability of individual courses. The activity limitation also applies to courses which are not repeatable in themselves but for which similar activities exist. For example, there are several similar course titles in Art, Music, Theater, and Kinesiology which are considered to be the same activity. A student may enroll four times in courses which are considered to be the same activity, such as twice in Theater 279, Musical Theater (RPT 3), and twice in Theater 280, Musical Theater Workshop (RPT 3). In addition students may repeat Cooperative Education 395 twice and Cooperative Education 941 up to four times. Any combination may be used as long as four enrollments in one activity is not exceeded.

This activity enrollment limitation begins with the Fall 1983 term. Excess enrollment will result in administrative exclusion. Consult a counselor for the latest restricted activity enrollment list.

NOTE: Whenever the student’s record is reviewed for the purpose of determining his or her unit credits, all of the student’s record is reviewed, not just the course work since the beginning of Fall 1983.

PETITIONS

Students should file a petition form when they are requesting assistance with: academic renewal, course substitution, and enrollment in more than 19 units, return from disqualification (dismissal), and other related concerns. Specific petition forms are available for course repetition to improve substandard grades, grade change, and lining out successfully repeated courses. The petition forms may be obtained in the Office of Admissions and Records, room, JH-Lobby, and filed in the same office. Students must consult a counselor, advisor, mentor or Department Head when filing a petition.

Refund policy with which the institution is required to comply for return of unearned tuition and fees [C.F.R. § 668.43(a)(2)]:

ENROLLMENT FEE REFUND POLICY

For full term courses: a student may receive a full refund for classes dropped (and refunds requested from the Business Office) through the end of the second week of instruction. There will be no refunds for classes dropped after that, unless a class is canceled or rescheduled by the college administration. After the second week of classes, the student may drop a course and use the fee previously paid that semester to add another class. Therefore, we advise the student to drop and add at the same time.

For short term, Summer session, and Winter Intersession courses, students may receive a full refund for classes dropped (and refunds requested in the Business Office) through the end of a period of time equal to 10% of total class time usually during the first week of classes. There will be no refunds after that, unless a class is canceled or rescheduled by the administration. Students are required to request refunds at the Business Office at the time they drop their classes even if dropping by telephone. If college expenses have been paid by federal financial aid funds, any refund due will revert to the financial aid program rather than to the student. Expenses paid by financial aid may be subject to a special pro-rata refund calculation.

Contact the Financial Aid Administrator or the College Financial Administrator for specific information regarding refund calculations for financial aid recipients.

Requirements and procedures for officially withdrawing [C.F.R. § 668.43(a)(3)] :

Dropping Classes

Students wishing to drop one or more classes must do so through the online registration system, at www.lattc.edu.

It is the student’s responsibility to officially drop from class through the website or in person. Students must drop by the end of the second week of semester-length classes to avoid fees. Any drops or exclusions that occur after the no penalty drop date (under last day to drop without a “W”) and up to 75% of the time the class is scheduled will result in a “W” on the student’s record which will be included in the determination of progress probation. Withdrawals are not permitted beyond 75% of class meeting time.

A grade (A, B, C, D, F, P, INC, or NP) will be assigned to students who are enrolled past the last day to drop even if they stop attending class, except in cases of extenuating circumstances. After the last day to drop students may withdraw from class upon petition demonstrating extenuating circumstances and after consultation with the appropriate faculty.

Summary of requirements related to return of Title IV funds (grant and loan aid) [C.F.R. § 668.43(a)(4)] :

Return to Title IV

Students who receive federal financial aid and then withdraw from ALL approved classes at their financial aid processing school may have to repay some or all of the federal funds they received.

A student’s eligibility for financial aid is based upon their enrollment. The Higher Education Amendment of 1998 governs the Return to Title IV Funds Policy for a student who completely withdraws from a period of enrollment (i.e., semester). These rules assume that a student “earns” aid based on his/her semester enrollment. “Unearned” aid, other than Federal Work-Study, must be returned. Unearned aid is the amount of federal financial aid disbursed that exceeds the amount the student has earned. Unearned aid may be subject to repayment.

During the first 60% of the semester enrollment, a student earns aid in direct proportion to the length of time of his/her enrollment. The percentage of time the student remained enrolled is the percentage of aid for that period for which the student earned his/her aid. A student who remains enrolled beyond the 60% point of the semester enrollment has earned all of his/her aid for the period.

If a student owes a repayment, the student will be notified by email. The repayment may include institutional charges. The student has 45 days from the date of the notification to repay. A hold will be placed on the student’s academic and financial aid records. The hold will prevent the student from receiving college services and will jeopardize future financial aid eligibility. Unpaid overpayments will be reported to the U.S. Department of Education for collection.

It is advised that the student contact the Financial Aid Office before withdrawing from all of his/her classes so the student understands the results of his/her actions. Please refer to the college schedule of classes or the college catalog for the policy regarding the refunding of enrollment fees and nonresident tuition.
