Three Repeat Policy
Baruch College’s Three Repeat policy restricts students to a maximum of three registrations for any single course.
This means three registrations regardless of the following grades the student has achieved: W, WU, WN, PEN, FIN, FAB, FPN, and F. This policy excludes courses that have earned any of the following grades: A (A+ equivalent), A-,B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, P, CR and INC. 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.
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 the required course(s) on the third attempt can result in dismissal from the major or college.
Base-Level Pre-Calculus and Calculus Courses
The policy on repeating courses covers any and all base-level pre-calculus and calculus courses (MTH 2001, 2003, 2009, or 2009T for pre-calculus and MTH 2205, 2207, or 2610 for calculus), 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.
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.
