Are there any special policies on repeating courses in the major?

Seats in CS 115, 215, and 315 can be scarce, and we want to prioritize first-time students, followed by former students who have had at least a semester to consider their options and reflect on their study strategies, followed by currently enrolled students who think they won't pass and will need to re-enroll next semester.

  • If you got a grade below C- in 115, 215, or 315 in a past semester and need to repeat it, see the FAQ about permission numbers. You will need one.
  • If you are currently enrolled in CS 115, 215, or 315, you will not be allowed to re-enroll in the same course until the end the final registration appointment window.
  • If you got a C- or better in CS 115, 215, or 315 and just want to repeat it for some reason, see a CS faculty advisor. We will not give you this permission until at least the end the final registration appointment window, to make sure students who really needs the course has the chance to enroll.

Regardless of the above, if you are trying to take one of these courses for the fourth or greater time, make an appointment with the department chair. Depending on the circumstances, you may not be able to do this at SSU.
