CSM Repeat Override

The College of Science and Mathematics has updated our Repeat Override Policy for all courses in our college. KSU's university-wide policy mandates that a student request permission for a third or higher attempt in any course from the college that houses it. The College of Science and Mathematics requires that you complete a CSM Repeat form. We will review your form submission and either approve, deny, or request additional information so that we can better support you and your success!

You should ONLY use these forms if you are requesting a 3rd or higher attempt of an ASTR, BIOL, CHEM, ENVS, GEOL, MATH, PHYS, or SCI course. Keep in mind that withdrawal (W or WF) count as attempts of a course.

There are two different processes you must follow depending on if you are requesting a 3rd attempt or a 4th or higher attempt. Please ensure that you follow the correct instructions below for the attempt you are requesting.

    1. Personal Information: Provide your name, KSU student ID number, KSU email address, and major as they appear on your record.

    2. Course Information: Provide course prefix, course number, course title, and number of attempts (including withdrawal attempts).

    3. Written Responses to Questions: There are four short answer questions on the form. Your response must be between 250 and 2000 characters. Your answers must provide significant levels of detail, incomplete responses or responses with inadequate detail may result in the request being denied.

    4. Incomplete Responses: Incomplete forms will not be considered, please ensure that you complete the form in its entirety.

    5. Completing the Form: At the end of the form, you will be able to save a PDF copy of your submission, we recommend you save this for your records.

    6. Timeline for Decision: Please allow at least 3 business days from the time of form submission for a decision to be rendered. An email regarding the decision will be sent to your KSU student email account.

    1. Two-Week Time Management Plan: Requests for a 4th or higher attempt of a course requires that you create and submit a sample two-week time management plan. We recommend you complete this prior to starting the repeat form. You will find a sample two-week time management plan and detailed instructions below (see number 8).

    2. Supporting Documents (optional): You may wish to provide supporting documentation or letter(s) of support for your request, but it is not required. Please do not include detailed medical records. If you had a healthcare related issue, a simple doctors note will suffice. If you plan to include a letter of support from an advisor or instructor, you need to give that individual at least a two week notice so they have time to consider the request, and if they are willing, write a letter. You need to have secured the letter prior to starting the form.
