The California Community Colleges governing board discussed today the possibility of a a system-wide policy change that would limit students from repeating certain courses they have been successfully completed.

The change is part of an effort to better allocate already meager state funds after years of severe budget cuts and allow more students the opportunity to take courses that will help them graduate, gain a certificate, or transfer, according to system spokesman Paul Feist.

The board will be accepting public comment for 45 days. Input can be emailed to or faxed to 916-322-9030 by 5 p.m. June 15.

The Board of Governors will hear the second reading of the proposed policy and vote on it in July. If it passes it will go into effect for fall 2013.
