SOUTHEAST MISSOURI STATE UNIVERSITY
FACULTY SENATE BILL 13-A-3
Approved by the Faculty Senate
January 30, 2013
BRIEF SUMMARY: This bill specifies the policy portion of the existing Faculty Handbook section on Repeating Courses (Chapter 3, Section C9).
REVISING "REPEATING COURSES" TO ESTABLISH A POLICY SECTION
BE IT RESOLVED THAT: subject to the passage and approval of both this bill and its companion bill establishing a corresponding "procedures" section, Chapter 3, Section C9 of the Faculty Handbook be amended by replacing the existing content with the following "policy" section (with the companion "procedures" to follow it in the Handbook):
Undergraduate students who have received a grade below an ‘A' in a course may repeat the course, provided they have not completed a course for which the repeated course is a prerequisite. Individual academic units and programs may set more stringent conditions and restrictions than these on the repeating of courses, so long as the conditions and restrictions are clearly communicated to students in advance. Thus, students should visit with an academic adviser to determine whether re-enrollment is advisable, since certain department or divisional policies may be important in this regard. Furthermore, students should be aware that repeating a course may have an impact on financial aid, insurance, veterans benefits, entrance to professional schools, participation in athletics, immigration status, and other academic and non-academic matters.
