3 Repeat policy
Baruch College's 3 Repeat policy restricts students to a maximum of three registrations for any single course. This means three registrations regardless of the grade the student has achieved, including grades of W, WU, WN, PEN, FIN, FAB, FPN, and F. Because this policy was not strictly enforced in all disciplines during the first term of its inception, some students might have already taken courses three times or more.
Appeals: Student who wishes to take ANY course for the fourth time (either at Baruch or on permit) must appeal to the appropriate Committee on Academic Standing (either the Joint Committee for students not yet in an official major, or the Committee on Academic Standing of the School in which the student is majoring).
Rate-of-Progress Probation and Dismissal Policies: There are certain courses that are required for the Bachelor degrees offered at Baruch College. Students who take a required course for the second time will be placed on rate of progress probation and should see an academic advisor as soon as possible. Failure to complete required course(s) on the third attempt can result in dismissal from the major or college.
Base-level calculus courses: The policy on repeating courses covers any or all base-level calculus courses (MTH 2205, 2207, or 2610), e.g., one course taken three times, each course taken once, or a one-and-two combination. All combinations will be treated identically as three attempts.
Repeat for Mastery Pilot Program (effective Fall 2018): The policy on repeating courses for mastery covers any or all pre-calculus courses (MTH 2000, 2001, 2003, and 2009). Students who want/need to repeat pre-calculus after earning a passing grade of C-, D+, or D will have three attempts to take the course, e.g., one course taken three times, each course taken once, or a one-and-two combination. All combinations will be treated identically as three attempts. The credit for the pre-calculus course will be applied toward the degree once. In order to repeat for mastery, students must apply through the Office of the Registrar.
Pre-business courses: Students who fail to complete one or more of the Zicklin pre-business courses (ACC 2101, CIS 2200, ECO 1001 and 1002, LAW 1101, MTH 2205/2207/2610, and STA 2000) are encouraged to see an academic advisor to discuss their options.
