The College District has an open admissions policy that ensures that all persons who can benefit from postsecondary education have an opportunity to enroll. The College District shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, religion, disability, age, or military status in admissions.

Admission to the College District does not guarantee admittance to a particular course or program of study. A student may be required to satisfy certain requirements before enrolling in particular courses of study.

The Chancellor shall develop procedures for student admissions, including any additional course admission requirements. The procedures shall be published in the College District catalog and other relevant College District publications.

College District Admissions Review

The appropriate campus vice president shall consider those students whose applications for admission or readmission have been reviewed but not approved by the campus registrar.

The appropriate campus vice president shall consider applications from applicants/students:

Who have been suspended by the College District or another college or university three or more times;

Whose attendance, as evidenced, may be incompatible with the aims and objectives of the College District; or

Whose presence on the campus, in the judgment of the College District, would not be in the best interest of the applicant or the College District.

The campus vice president's decision regarding a student's admission shall be communicated to the campus registrar to update the student's official admission status. Applicants may appeal the decision of the campus vice president to the campus president.

Admissions to Noncredit Continuing Education Courses
