**Note: If any information on your Approval Form is missing or incomplete, it will not be processed and you will need to submit a new form. 

Petition: Dual Enrollment Request for Maximum Unit Exception

Dual Enrollment students demonstrating advanced scholastic standing may appeal SBCC BP 5120 which limits enrollment to a non-senior dual enrollment student to 10 semester units and seniors to a maximum of 12 units.  If approved, it would allow a Dual Enrollment student to enroll in a maximum of 12 units or a maximum of 3 courses.  The petition must be submitted to the Dual Enrollment office for approval prior to the student being able to register in courses.  To download the petition click here.
