State Rule 6A-14.0301
See “Conditions That Apply to a Third Attempt in a Class.”
- Unless a course is identified as “repeatable” a student may have only three attempts in any one course: one initial enrollment and two repeats. Withdrawals, excluding “WC”, and audits are counted as attempts.
- The most recent grade is included in the computation of the cumulative grade point average (Exception: see Grade Forgiveness.)
- The third attempt at a course is charged at a cost equal to the full cost of instruction, even if the course is designated as “repeatable.”
- Courses taken at institutions other than EFSC will not be counted in determining repeat charges.
- Some types of financial aid do not cover repeat course attempts. Students should check with the Financial Aid Office to determine status.
- A course may be counted only once toward graduation requirements, unless the course is designated as “repeatable.”
- Attempts “counted” begin with courses taken fall of 1997.
- A student may appeal the maximum attempt rule through the office of the Associate Dean or Dean only if there are documented extenuating circumstances that negatively affected the student’s progress.
