Students, who have received a sub-standard grade (D or F) in a course taken at Orange Coast College, may petition to have the sub-standard grade “excluded” from their grade point average (GPA). In order to qualify for an exclusion of a sub-standard grade, the course must be retaken at a regionally accredited college or university. The course must be evaluated for equivalency to the OCC course. The student must submit a
Petition to Exclude a Sub-standard Grade
to the Enrollment Center. The grade will still appear on the student's official transcript, but the substandard grade will be excluded from the GPA calculation.
