University Policies…by the Numbers Three-peat Six W 24/30 rule Excessive hours GPA requirements Grade requirements (transfer grades too) 45 & 75 hour audits (and other holds)
Image of page 5
Course Repeat Policy 2 replaces 1 If you don’t pass a course on 1st attempt, grade earned on 2nd attempt replaces the 1st grade in GPA calculation (but remains on transcript) 2 & 3 in GPA If you don’t pass a course on the 2 nd attempt, both the 2 nd and 3 rd grades earned are factored into your GPA. THREE-peat Maximum number of attempts you can make on 1 course at UTD. If you can’t pass it in 3 attempts at UTD, you must find it elsewhere and transfer it back (won’t replace any grades). Costs out-of-state tuition! Off-Campus Repeats If you fail a course at UTD, you may repeat the course elsewhere and transfer it back…but it won’t replace any grades. You may NOT transfer an equivalent course if that course was taken at UT Dallas with a passing grade (D's included!) . The only exception to this policy is the three-peat rule.

Six Withdrawal (W) Rule Maximum number of withdrawals – SIX! Any course dropped after Census Day is a “W” Withdrawals accumulate across all public colleges and universities in Texas 2 W at UTD + 4 W at Collin College = 6 W “W” is not a grade, but does appear on transcript Withdrawals count as an attempt in the “max number of attempts” we just discussed!

24/30 Rule When you are within 30 hours of graduation: 24 of those 30 hours must be taken at UTD So, up to 6 hours can be taken off-campus* *No classes are to be taken off-campus in a student’s graduating semester!
