Henson School of Science & Technology Course Repeat Policy
This policy applies to all undergraduate
courses offered in the Henson School of Science and Technology,
effective academic year 2013-2014.
Note: other restrictions on course repeats
may apply; check with specific academic programs for details.
Statement of Policy
Students may repeat courses offered by the
Henson School of Science & Technology one
time at Salisbury University (SU) without special permission. These include
courses with prefixes BIOL, CHEM,
COSC, ENGR, ENVH, GEOG, GEOL, MATH, MDTC, NURS, SCIE,
PHYS, RESP for which the student earned any grade (B, C, D, F,
PS, I, W, WP, WF, NGR, or Audit). Students should take note that
grades of W, WF, or WP earned by withdrawing from a
class after the schedule adjustment period (typically the first
week of the semester for Spring/Fall and the first three days for Summer/Winter) are considered grades and are subject to this
policy. Exceptions are those courses that may be repeated for
credit (e.g., BIOL 490, CHEM 499). Also, some majors may limit
students to a single repeat of specific courses (see requirements for
Students who wish to repeat a course a second time (third enrollment) must seek
approval from the Henson Dean’s Office by completing a
Motivation and Strategies for Success plan (coming soon). Completion of this process does not
guarantee enrollment for a
third time as enrollment will depend upon
a compelling plan
for success and available seats in the course.
Students will not be allowed to enroll in a course for a fourth
time unless there are extremely extenuating circumstances.
Please note that all grades appear on student’s transcripts. For undergraduate
courses, the grade from the most recent attempt at SU is used
to calculate grade point averages, even if that grade is lower
than the first time the student took the course. Students
transferring credits from other institutions should be aware that
these courses may complete degree requirements, but
grades earned in these transferred courses will not be used in
SU GPA calculations and do not replace any grade earned in the
equivalent course at SU.
