Course Retake Policies
3rd Attempt to Register policy
The Chemistry and Physics Department has instituted a policy for students wanting to take a chemistry class for the third or more times. The student must complete the Third Attempt to Register Request form, get the instructor's signature, and then make an appointment with the Chemistry chair. The student is required to meet with the department chair three times during the semester. Once the chair signs the form, the form goes to the 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.

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.
