Repeat a Course:

If a student receives a substandard grade (D, F or NP) or withdraws (W) from a course once, the student may repeat the course for a second time without permission.

Students who have taken a course twice but earned a substandard grade or dropped the course (D, F, NP or W), may submit a petition to repeat the course for a third time. The petitions must be approved by the dean or associate dean. No appointment is necessary. The petitions can be found in the Humanities Division Office, Room H322; open Monday through Friday, 7:45 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

If the petition is approved, the student must take it to Admissions & Records for clearance. Once cleared, the student can register and pay for the class.

A student may not repeat any class for a 4th time. There are no exceptions given at the Humanities Division office.
