Maximum Attempts per Course

State Rule 6A-14.0301


See “Conditions That Apply to a Third Attempt in a Class.”

  1. 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.
  2. The most recent grade is included in the computation of the cumulative grade point average (Exception: see Grade Forgiveness.)
  3. 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.”
  4. Courses taken at institutions other than EFSC will not be counted in determining repeat charges.
  5. Some types of financial aid do not cover repeat course attempts. Students should check with the Financial Aid Office to determine status.
  6. A course may be counted only once toward graduation requirements, unless the course is designated as “repeatable.”
  7. Attempts “counted” begin with courses taken fall of 1997.
  8. 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.
