Authorization from the department is required to register for a third or additional attempt of a course. Registering without prior permission is putting you at risk of being dropped from the course. Petitions are reviewed by the department that owns the course, not the student’s major department.
Only attempts of courses taken at Towson University count as a third or additional attempt. If a previously posted transfer course is counting as one of your attempts of a course, please notify our office via email (email@example.com) so that your record can be adjusted to only include TU courses.
Withdrawals and audits do not count as attempts for most courses, however, withdrawals do count as attempts for BIOL 221, 221L, 222, and 222L only.
If your request to make a third attempt of a Core/GenEd course is denied, you should enroll in an alternate course from the same Core/GenEd category to satisfy the requirement.
