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.

Unless specifically exempted by statute, every course, course section, or class, the average daily attendance of which is to be reported for state aid, wherever offered and maintained by the District, shall be fully open to enrollment and participation by any person who has been admitted to the College and who meets such prerequisites as may be established pursuant to the California Administrative Code, and shall be held only in places fully open to all such persons.
Students at Ohlone College are expected to pursue their course work with integrity and honesty. Academic dishonesty occurs when a student attempts to show possession of a level of knowledge or skill that he or she does not possess.
The two most common kinds of academic dishonesty are cheating and plagiarism. Cheating is the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work through the use of dishonest, deceptive, or fraudulent means. Plagiarism is representing the work of someone else as one's own and submitting it to fulfill academic requirements.
Students are responsible for knowing what constitutes academic dishonesty and for consulting with instructors about questions or concerns.
Copies of the Academic Dishonesty Procedures are available in the Office of the Vice President, Student Services in Building 7, third floor on the Fremont campus and on the Student Services website.
