About the Ohlone College Catalog
The Ohlone Community College District has made every reasonable effort to determine that all information stated in this catalog is accurate. Courses and programs offered, together with other matters contained herein, are subject to change without notice bythe administration of the Ohlone Community College District for reasons related to student enrollment, level of financial support, or for any other reason, at the discretion of the District. The District further reserves the right to add, amend, or repeal any of its rules, regulations, policies, and procedures. Students are expected to be familiar with the information in the catalog, class schedule, and other publications relating to student attendance and conduct.
Pursuant to California Code of Regulations §40401, a student pursuing an associate degree, a certificate of achievement, or a certificate of accomplishment may follow the general education and major requirements which are published in the catalog in effect at the time in which the student first began attendance at Ohlone College, or regulations current at the time the student files for and receives a degree or certificate. Exceptions to this policy are by the petition process. Students pursuing academic programs that require a separate application process are assigned to the catalog year that the student was accepted into the program.
A course in which a student receives a W is not considered to have been completed. The preceding catalog rights are subject to the following limitation: students who do not complete an Ohlone course(s) during a period of six consecutive terms, including Summer Term, forfeit the right to follow the degree or certificate requirements set forth in any catalog prior to their resumption of studies. For the purposes of this section, the effective period of a catalog extends from the beginning of a Fall Semester to the close of the subsequent Summer Term. Please note that Ohlone may require substitutions for required courses that have been discontinued.
Revision of Regulations
Any regulations issued by the Administration of the College shall have the same force as those printed in this catalog and shall supersede, after notice has been made, any ruling on the same subject that may appear in the printed catalog or other official bulletins of the College.
Ohlone College exists to serve residents of the cities of Fremont, Newark, and the Bay Area. Every effort is made to provide the information and services needed to facilitate successful attendance at Ohlone College. Students are individually held responsible for information contained in this catalog and in the class schedule. Failure to read and comply with policies, regulations, and procedures contained therein will not exempt a student from whatever penalties the student may incur.
