Repeated Failure Policy

A student who twice fails a required course at Colorado School of Mines and is not subject to academic suspension will automatically be placed on "special hold" status with the Registrar, regardless of the student's cumulative or semester GPA. The student must meet with the subject advisor and receive written permission to remove the hold before being allowed to register.

In the case of three or more Fs in the same course, the student must meet with the faculty Readmissions Committee and receive permission to remove the hold before being allowed to register.

Transfer credit from another school will not be accepted for a twice-failed course.

For further information on Academic Suspension, please see GPA Calculation & Academic Standing.

For further information regarding the Readmissions Committee, please contact Derek Morgan in Student Activities.
