3 Repeat Policy
Baruch College's 3 Repeat Policy (effective Fall 2009) 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.
Students who wish to take any course for the fourth time (either at Baruch or on permit) must appeal to the appropriate Committee on Academic Standing.
Rate of Progress Probation and Dismissal
The following courses are required for any bachelor’s degree: ENG 2100, ENG 2150, and minimally, a 2000-level MATH course (and/or an H or T version of these courses). Failure to complete one or more of these courses after three registrations will result in dismissal from the College. Students who take, but do not pass, one of the aforementioned courses 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 the course(s) in question by the end of the third attempt will result in dismissal. While on rate-of-progress probation, a student will be restricted to no more than four courses (13 equated credits) each semester.
Registration for the subsequent semester after the third attempt will be withheld. Students who are dismissed may not continue at Baruch College. The Fall 2016/ Spring 2017 Undergraduate and Graduate Bulletins can be viewed here.
Base-Level Calculus Courses
The policy on repeating courses covers any and all base-level calculus courses (MTH 2205, 2207, or 2610). Any combination of these courses will be treated as three attempts.
