Special Enrollment Request for Requisite Course Repeat

Use this form to request approval for a first or second repeat of a requisite course in a major or pre-major in which a grade requirement in the course must be met to continue in the major or pre-major. Prior to submitting your request, review the entire Repeat Policy.

Note: Only one repeat per course is permitted for improving a course grade through grade forgiveness with the higher of the two grades counted in the student’s GPA. All grades for the course will remain on the student’s official transcript. Repeats for grade forgiveness are limited to grades of “C minus” or lower. Grades assigned as part of disciplinary procedures may not be repeated for grade forgiveness. A maximum of 16 semester units of CSUN coursework may be repeated for grade forgiveness. A maximum of an additional 12 units of CSUN course work may be repeated for grade averaging.

Refer to your Degree Progress Report (DPR) to obtain your GPAs for the next two questions.

If needed, visit About Colleges to find the College of your Major.

Previous Attempt

(e.g., Spring 2020)

What prevented you from earning the required grade in this course during your previous enrollment?  What has changed that will enable you to complete this course with the required grade this time?

The associate dean will review your request. If your request is approved, the Associate Dean's Office will submit this form to the Office of the Registrar and if needed, provide you with instructions on where to go to obtain a permission number from a faculty member or department chair or how to be placed on a waitlist for the course you wish to repeat. This form does not provide priority registration, nor does it supersede any College, Department or faculty decision on the order of rank of student add requests.

My electronic submission certifies the information contained on this form is complete and accurate. It also authorizes the associate dean to obtain necessary documents and to verify submitted information.
