Economics Department Course Retake Policy
For the purpose of this policy, "course" refers to any course offered by the Economics Department that is used to satisfy the requirements of any major or minor offered by the department (economics [ECO], management [MGT]).
A student may repeat a course to replace a failing grade, grade of X, indicating withdrawal from course, or to improve the student's grade point average when the first enrollment resulted in a passing grade.
A student may enroll in a course twice. A third or subsequent enrollment in that course shall be with the approval of the Economics Department only and contingent upon available space in the course after all student registration occurs.
A. Required Core in Economics: 24 credit hours
Note: A minimum grade of C in the foundational classes (ECO 105, ECO 110 and ECO 111) is required for all economics and business economics majors before taking upper-level courses that require any of these foundational classes as prerequisites.
