Kirkwood Community College Credit Catalog 2017-2018

Online Registration Restriction

Qualifying writing and reading placement scores are required in order to enroll in online classes. Students with previously earned credits online are exempt from this restriction.

Students with a grade point average of less than 1.8 for all online classes within the previous three years will have a registration restriction placed on their record. The restriction prevents registration in online classes until the average for online courses reaches 1.8 or better, or a three year period has passed. The average for online courses can be improved by retaking failed or low-scored courses in another format (face-to-face, WebLive or hybrid). Students will receive a warning when their online GPA is lower than 2.0. In cases where extenuating circumstances can be documented a petition for policy waiver may be submitted to Distance Learning for review and decision on enrollment.

Note: This registration restriction does not prevent students from enrolling in face-to face, WebLive or hybrid format classes, only online classes.
