Rare and Endangered Courses
Repeating a lower division Math Class more than twice
At the request of colleagues in Physics and Engineering, the Math Department voted on a new policy for students registering in a lower division math course for the third (or more) time. There is a special form entitled Repeating a Course for More Than Two Times Petition at www.sjsu.edu/registrar/docs/Multiple_Repeat.pdf which the instructor must sign for the student to be allowed to register in a course for the third (or more) time. The Math Department is now asking their instructors teaching lower division math courses during the regular school year not sign such forms and let students know that they are only allowed to take a course for the third time during the summer where they pay the full cost and they are less likely to be taking up a space from a student who is taking the course for the first time.
