Student Often Repeating Classes At Macomb CC

WARREN, Mich. (AP) -- State auditors say they discovered another Michigan community college allowing students to repeat classes over and over.
Auditors say allowing students at Warren-based Macomb Community College to repeatedly take the same class isn't a good use of tax dollars. They found 549 students took the same class four or more times over a two-year period. Many were algebra classes. One student took algebra eight times.
Taking a class more than three times at Macomb Community College requires approval from a dean, adviser or counselor. State auditors didn't always find appropriate rationale for classes to be repeated.
In response, the school says it will make students aware of services to help them succeed. Auditors in December found a similar trend at Monroe County Community College.
