Academic Standards and Policies < CourseLeaf

If you want to meet 1-1 with an FRC staff member appointments are encouraged. For Faculty questions, please email the FRC team atfrc-  If you have a canvas question, please include your CRN or a link to your course. Refer to the Advanced Placement Chart for complete exam and credit listings.

Students dismissed based on violations of the Standards of Student Conduct may be readmitted or reinstated subject to the terms of the suspension and/or dismissal. I was hoping if anyone webgrade sbcc could give me some insight regarding how Michael Young (or any other professor) teaches that class since all I know is that 75% of your grade is exams which is certainly nerve-racking.

A score of 3, 4, or 5 is required to grant credit for IGETC and CSU GE certification. Each AP exam may be applied to one IGETC/CSU GE area as satisfying one course requirement, with some exceptions. Students who have earned credit from an AP exam should not take a comparable college course because transfer credit will not be granted for both. Note that each campus in the California State University system determines how it will apply external examinations toward credit in the major. For information about course credit awarded toward the major by each CSU campus, contact the individual campus.

Immigration and Naturalization Service for non-quota immigration students in accordance with provisions of Section 101 (a) (15) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act, as amended. Santa Barbara City College is fully accredited by the Accrediting Commission for the Community and Junior Colleges, which is part of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. All courses equivalent to university and college work are generally accepted by all WASC member colleges and most other colleges and universities in the United States.

Students may elect a Pass/No Pass grading option with a faculty signature (academic counselor, department chairperson, or instructor of record). A completed Pass / No Pass form must be submitted to Admissions & Records no later than the last day of instruction for the course. After that time, neither the student nor the instructor may change the decision.

  1. Faculty members should allow the expression of differing points of view, while being careful to avoid the repeated and excessive intrusion of material that has no relation to their subject matter.
  2. Thus, a 12-unit course load, for example, represents a commitment of 36 hours per week—comprised of 12 hours in class and 24 hours of outside preparation.
  3. Freedom of expression is a legal right protected by the Constitution of the United States.
  4. Registered students may change their programs during a designated period at the beginning of each semester.
  5. The form must be signed by the instructor of record, the department chairperson, and the academic dean, and assigned a section number by the Scheduling Office.

A student who earns and maintains a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher in all graded units for courses taken at Santa Barbara City College shall be considered to be in Academic Good Standing. Complete a minimum of 18 semester units (or 27 quarter units) of General Education from Areas A-D to include at least one course for a total of 3 semester units or 4 quarter units (4 semester units for Natural Science) from each area (A, B, C, D-1 and D-2). A course used to meet a requirement in one Area (A-D) cannot be used to meet any other requirement in Areas A-D. The General Education program at Santa Barbara City College outlines a core curriculum that provides an opportunity for students to explore elements of the intellectual and ethical traditions to which they belong. The faculty believes that this common core is of general and lasting intellectual significance and that it will establish a foundation for the lifelong process of intellectual inquiry and the integration of knowledge, skills, attitudes and experiences. The college is also approved by the California Department of Education for the training of veterans under the provisions of the G.I.

Pass/No Pass Grading

Courses in which a student has received a grade of D+, D, D-, F, NC or NP may be repeated twice (not to exceed a maximum of 3 enrollments). Those courses, in which a student has received a “C” grade, or better, may not be repeated. Exceptions to this policy are listed under “Course Repetition Policy” in this Catalog. An Incomplete (I) non-evaluative symbol may be issued at the end of the term by the instructor for unforeseeable, emergency, and justifiable reasons that preclude a student’s final completion of course requirements. An “I” requires an Incomplete Contract signed by the instructor and student which shall contain the conditions for the removal of the “I” and the grade assigned if the Incomplete Contract conditions are not met within the stipulated timeframe. A copy of this contract must be given to the student and a copy submitted to Admissions & Records by the instructor and will be kept on file until the “I” is made up or the time limit has passed.

The student may petition the Dean, Student Affairs, to be reinstated and if approved will be permitted to enroll for the following semester, or after one or more semester(s) not in attendance the student may reapply and will be readmitted. The student shall be removed from progress probation when the cumulative percentage of all W, I or No Pass units drops below 50%. Students placed on progress probation may be subject to unit and course restrictions and/or other conditions of enrollment. Students placed on academic probation may be subject to unit and course limitations and/or other conditions of enrollment.

Fall 2023 Training Calendar

There are several actions that could trigger this block including submitting a certain word or phrase, a SQL command or malformed data. SBCC Skills Competency Awards and specific requirements are available here. SBCC Certificates of Achievement and specific requirements are available here. For purposes of determining catalog rights, the catalog year starts in the Fall (Fall/Spring/Summer). Our training, and other flex opportunities, are all hosted in the Vision Resource Center (VRC).

The Transfer Recognition Award is granted to any student who has completed a minimum of 24 units at Santa Barbara City College prior to transfer and has been presented a letter of acceptance from an accredited four-year college or university. The Skills Competency Award (SCA) Program identifies courses which, when taken together, will best prepare students to enter the work force in their chosen field. Candidates for a Skills Competency Award are expected to complete at least 20% of the department requirements in residence at SBCC.

Classification of Students

Students failing to drop officially may receive an “F”, “FW” or “NP” grade. Educational program—is an organized sequence of courses leading to a defined objective, a degree, a certificate, a diploma, a license, or transfer to another institution of higher education. Course—means an organized pattern of instruction on a specified subject offered by a community college pursuant to subdivisions (a), (b) or (c), Section 55002. However, units attempted for which “I” is recorded shall be considered in Progress Probation and Disqualification procedures. Throughout each semester and Summer Session, the Santa Barbara Community College District may sponsor voluntary off-campus, co-curricular field trips and excursions. If a student receives a substandard grade (D+, D, D-, F, FW, NP, NC) and/or withdraws (W) from the course, the student is allowed to enroll in the course two more times for a maximum of three enrollments.

Santa Barbara City College Information Competency Requirement (Area F)

I heard the acceptance rate is very high for all students and the minimum is 2.0. Students who completed CIS 240 are not required to complete CIS 243 Systems Analysis and Design. The “FW” symbol may not be used in place of a qualified military withdrawal or an excused withdrawal. Submit electronic records of achievement (grade documentation) using the Faculty Grade Packet Tool located under the Faculty Class Management tab in Pipeline. This website is using a security service to protect itself from online attacks.

Students may petition the Admissions & Records Office to request an Excused Withdrawal (EW). The EW  symbol reflects that a student’s withdrawal from a course was compelled by circumstances beyond the student’s control. The student shall complete and submit the Petition for Waiver of College Regulations to Admissions and Records. The petition shall be reviewed by the Scholastic Standards Committee and if granted an “EW” would be assigned by Admissions and Records. Excused withdrawals shall not be counted in progress probation or disqualification calculations and shall not be counted for the permitted number of withdrawals or counted as an enrollment attempt. Non-degree applicable basic skills courses—are those in reading, writing, computation and English as a Second Language which are designated by the community college district as non-degree applicable credit courses pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 55002.

The first two official transcripts requested at SBCC are free (Credentials handling charge applies). Each student is responsible for acquainting him/herself with department requirements and prerequisites, and for presenting his/her plan for study or project to an appropriate instructor. Instructors need not accept students for independent study, as their assignments may preclude additional responsibility. Final grades will be available online in the Student Portal (web transcript), as instructors submit them. Final grades, official transcripts, diplomas and certificates will not be released if there is a hold or outstanding financial obligation on file at the Cashier’s Office.

A pass grade is granted for performance that is equivalent to the letter grade of “C” or better, which equates to satisfactory completion. A student who fails to perform satisfactory will be assigned a “no pass” grade. Transfer institutions may not accept all course with Pass/No Pass grading.
