Students Repeating CHE 1xx Courses

Any student who is currently registered for a second attempt at a CHE 1xx course will be sent an email reminding of the restriction against taking the class a third time. Those that want to take it a third time will have to complete a petition which does *not* guarantee they will be permitted to register. Students who were denied a third attempt this semester were told that if they can show improvement in their academic record, we can discuss a third (and final) attempt in a later semester.
