Important: Policy for Repeating Courses has Changed
The California Community College Board of Governors passed revisions to Title 5 regarding course repetition effective Summer 2012.
Students will only be allowed to enroll in a course not designated as "repeatable" (ENGL-101A, for instance) three times if they received a substandard grade (D, F, NP, or NC) or withdrew from the class with a W.
These new regulations were applied retroactively so enrollments prior to Summer 2012 will be counted towards the three times, and any student who has already taken a course the maximum number of times will no longer be able to take the same course at Ohlone College. Please refer to Repeating Courses for more information.
Residency Requirements - Admissions and Records
By state law Ohlone College is required to obtain evidence from students of physical presence in California and of their intent to make California their home state for other than a temporary period. For this reason, all information requested on the Application for Admission must be furnished. Incomplete applications will be rejected.
A California resident, for purposes of community college admission, is a person who has maintained physical presence in California for at least one year and one day immediately prior to the first day of instruction with the demonstrable intent of making California his or her home.
Non-residents of California will be required to pay the non-resident tuition fee. Non-resident students who have attended three years of high school in California may be eligible for exemption from non-resident tuition per AB 540.
Due to the complexity of residency requirements, students are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions and Records at (510) 659-6100 or firstname.lastname@example.org with specific questions.
Residency regulations may be found in sections 54000 54060 of Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations.
Students who are not United States citizens must verify their immigration status for the period from at least June 15, 2012 for the Summer 2013 Term and from at least August 24, 2012 for Fall 2013 Semester.
For this reason, non-citizens are asked to submit their Application for Admission in person at the Office of Admissions and Records. Students should be prepared to present a passport, permanent resident card, or other documentation (e.g. notice of action or receipt thereof) that will demonstrate their immigration status for the aforementioned period. This documentation is required every semester.
For assistance regarding citizenship and immigration status, please call the Office of Admissions and Records at (510) 659-6100 or email the Office of Admissions and Records at email@example.com.
Students who are not United States citizens may be considered a California resident for tuition purposes. To qualify, a person must be in a status eligible for residency and must have resided continuously in California for at least one year and one day immediately preceding the term in which the student enrolls in a class. Evidence must be provided to indicate that the person intends to make California his/her permanent home. The residence of an unmarried minor is that of the parents or legal guardian. The residence determination date is the day before a term begins for which the person is applying for admission. It is the student's responsibility to clearly demonstrate both physical presence in California and intent to establish California residency.
Students on or wishing to obtain the F-1 Student Visa should apply via the Ohlone College International Programs and Services Office.Skip plugin info.
