If you need to repeat a course for the third time, an Undergraduate Standards Committee Petition will be required by the College of Health Solutions.
The process of petitioning takes one to two months, depending on how many committees need to review the petition. Please read through the information carefully — petitions that are submitted with errors or insufficient justification will be returned and may delay a decision.
We recommend that you clearly and thoroughly address the following points in your statement on page two of the form and be sure to use proper grammar and spelling:
- Why are you petitioning to take the course for the third time? (If the class is not required for your degree, the petition will not be supported by the college.)
- Why were you unable to pass the class on either of the first two attempts?
- What is your plan to complete this course successfully if allowed to enroll for the third time (tutoring, writing center, changes to your academic or work schedule)?
Petitioning to repeat two classes for the third time in the same semester is not permitted.
