Reminder: Course Repeat Policy

originally sent to student listserv 04/26/2019

Hello, all!

As you begin finalizing your summer and fall 2019 schedules, please keep in mind the course repeat policy (published in the University catalog, initially clarified, 12 April 2018):

•A student who has taken IT 106 twice may not take IT 109
for their third attempt, nor will they be permitted to start
over with three attempts of IT 109 in lieu of taking IT 106.

•A student who has taken IT 109 twice may not take IT 106
for their third attempt, nor will they be permitted to start

VSE TERMINATION POLICY

No math, science, or Volgenau School of Engineering course that is required for the major may be attempted more than three times. Those students who do not successfully complete such a course within three attempts will be terminatedfrom the major. Undeclared students in the Volgenau School who do not successfully complete a course required for a Volgenau School major within three attempts will also be terminated.

In addition, students in the Volgenau School with evidence of continued failure to make adequate progress toward declaring or completing a Volgenau School major will also be terminated. Adequate progress is determined by the majorprogram. For more information, see AP.5.2.4 Termination from the Major.

Once a student has attempted one of these courses twice unsuccessfully, the third attempt must be no later than the next semester of enrollment, excluding summers. Failure to take the course at that time will result in terminationfrom the major. A third attempt of a Volgenau School of Engineering course requires support by the student’s major department as well as permission by the department offering the course. This permission is not guaranteed. If the student is unable to take thecourse when required, the student may request an extension to a future semester; extensions require approval of the student’s advisor, their department, and the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs. The deadline for extension requests is the add deadlinefor the semester in which the course is required.

Students who have been terminated from a Volgenau School of Engineering major may not register for a Volgenau School course without permission of the department offering the course. This applies to all undergraduate courses offeredby the Volgenau School except IT 104 Introduction to Computing (Mason Core) and STAT 250 Introductory Statistics I (Mason Core).

A student may not declare any major in the Volgenau School of Engineering if the student has previously met the termination criteria for that major at any time, regardless of what the student’s major was at the time the courseswere taken.
