Registration Transactions Requiring Special Approval
Many courses offered by the College require the completion of prerequisite
courses taken at Chabot College, or their equivalent at another accredited institution.
Students are advised to consult the course descriptions found in the current
College Catalog for the identification of the prerequisites for a course. Courses
with prerequisites are also designated in the current class schedule. Contact
the Counseling Center at (510)723-7013 for more information.

Limitation on Unit Load - Excess Units
Eighteen units per semester is considered to be a maximum load for a student.
In order to take more than the maximum, approval must be obtained from a counselor.
Visit the counseling center in Building 700 to obtain approval for excess units.
Academic Probation - Academic Success Contracts
Academic Success Contracts are designed for students who are experiencing sustained
academic difficulties. Students are required to meet with a counselor to review
their progress, to discuss any problems that might interfere with their studies
and to develop effective strategies to strengthen their academic progress. A
probationary contract is required each semester a student is on Academic Probation
before being cleared for registration. Visit the counseling center to schedule
an appointment to complete an Academic Success Contract.
Extenuating Circumstances Withdrawal
Students may withdraw from a class with extenuating circumstances after the
Withdrawal deadline. An Extenuating Circumstances Withdrawal Petition,
available through Counseling, along with supporting documentation must be
filed by the student with the instructor who will approve and verify that
the class is being passed with a minimum grade of D. If approved, the petition
is forwarded to the Dean of Counseling for final approval. Circumstances that
will be considered are acute medical problems, acute personal or family problems,
employment-related problems, or other similar circumstances preventing a student
from completing the class.
