Course Retake Policies

2nd Attempt to Register Policy for CHEM 210, 211, 310, 311

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has instituted a policy for students wanting to take CHEM 210, 211, 310, or 311 for the second time.

  • The student must complete the Second Attempt to Register Request form and submit the form to the Chemistry office manager in Wick Science Building Room 358, (chemistry@stcloudstate.edu).
  • Office Manager will enter an override into the registration system. The override code will not be entered into the system until the priority registration dates have passed. At that point the student may register for the course, assuming there are still seats available.

3rd Attempt to Register Policy for All Courses

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has instituted a policy for students wanting to take any chemistry class for the third or more times.

  • The student must complete the Waiver form for Course Repetition.
  • The student must obtain the signature of the College of Science and Engineering Student Relations Coordinator, Kaelyn Friese (WSB-145).
  • The student contacts the instructor to set up a time to get his/her signature on the waiver form.
  • Once the student relations coordinate and the course instructor sign the form, the student submits the form to the Chemistry office manager who will enter the override code into the registration. The override code will not be entered into the system until the priority registration dates have passed. At that point the student may register for the course, assuming there are still seats available.

If you have further questions you may contact us at 320-308-3031 or chemistry@stcloudstate.edu

Lab Grade Transfer Policy

Students repeating any 100- or 200-level chemistry course can transfer their lab grade from the immediately preceding semester and the lab grade the student has secured in the preceding semester must be  >90%.

The student requesting the transfer of lab grades must contact his/her previous instructor and request that the lab grades (the numeric grade) and their assessment of the student’s performance be sent directly to the new instructor.

The instructor has the prerogative to decide whether or not to count the old lab grade in the new grade for the course.

For any other chemistry course, it is up to the discretion of the instructor whether or not to allow the transfer of any previous lab grade.
