Repetition of a Course and Appeals Process

In accordance with the Cockrell School of Engineering's course repetition policies, an undergraduate in the Cockrell School of Engineering may not enroll in any lower division course in engineering, geology or natural sciences required by the engineering degree plan more than twice.

Enrolled is determined if the student was enrolled in the course as of the 12th class day (4th class day of a summer term). If the student Q-drops or withdraws after the 12th class day, the student is considered to have been enrolled. Unless there are rare and unusual circumstances that can be documented, it is not likely that an engineering student will be permitted to repeat a course more than twice. 

If a student fails to secure written consent to repeat a course and enrolls in the course, his or her registration may be deleted. If the student is denied approval to repeat a required course, then she or he will be placed in the undeclared major code and must consider other degree options. If a student is denied approval to repeat a course, repeating the course at another institution in anticipation of satisfying a degree requirement will not be permitted.

  • ECE students are highly encouraged to meet with the Undergraduate Advisors for a follow-up advising session. Please note that students are required to obtain a C- or better letter grade in all basic sequence courses, as well as, any course that is a prerequisite to another EE course.
