Students in the School of Engineering must repeat a required course after receiving a grade of D+, D, D-, F, Unsatisfactory, or Not Passed, and may do so no more than twice beyond the initial enrollment in the class. Students may repeat a course only one time (for a total of two attempts to earn a C- or better).
