Repeat Policy

The Math Skills Center administers a repeating policy for Math 072.  This policy strengthens the MSC goal of helping students prepare for studying college level mathematics and enhances student success. The MSC believes that students who participate in their education by attending class regularly and taking full advantage of support services offered at the Math Skills Center are most likely to achieve success. The following policy gives preference to students who demonstrate an active role in taking responsibility for his/her learning and a commitment to achieving success.

Students attempting to repeat the course will have a hold on their registration and will be given priority for an override to repeat the course based on effort in the first attempt.  This effort includes but is not limited to attendance in the Math Skills Center, class attendance and participation in Supplemental Instruction sessions.
