Permission to Repeat a Course

Effective fall 2020, undergraduate students who want to attempt a course for the third or greater time will need permission.  For the third attempt, the student will need permission from the Dean of the school or college in which the course is offered.  For the fourth attempt, the student will need permission from the Provost (provost@salemstate.edu). 

Students should download the form on this page, fill it out, save it,  and submit it to the appropriate dean's office or the provost's office via Salem State email as an attachment.  You are strongly advised to speak to an advisor if you are in the position of having to take a course for the third time. All requests should be submitted prior to the beginning of the add/drop period. Permission is not guaranteed.
