    PREVIOUS POLICY (effective through summer): Students may repeat up to 5 separate courses for which they earned a grade of C- or lower (developmental courses do not count in the 5 course limit). Students who wish to repeat a 6th course will need to appeal to Academic Standards.

    NEW POLICY (effective for Fall 2009):  The five course limit has been removed.  Instead, students are limited to one repeat of an individual course and must appeal to enroll for a course for the third time.  This policy will be monitored by WINS, and students who attempt to take a course for a third time (i. e. second repeat) will not be able to register for the course.
