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.

Nonresident U.S. military personnel on active duty in California (except those assigned for educational purposes to State supported institutions of higher education) are granted a waiver of non-resident tuition until they are discharged from their military service. Their dependents are granted a waiver for a period of one year and one day from the date they enter California. Upon expiration of the waiver, evidence must be provided as to the date the student surrendered his/her out-of-state residence to become a resident of California. The student will be classified as a non-resident and charged non-resident tuition until one year has elapsed since the out-of-state residence was surrendered.
Veterans should visit the Ohlone College Veterans Affairs Office website.
