3rd Attempt or 3 Peat Fee

REPEATED COURSES (3rd Repeat)

General Appropriations Act from Section 50 of HB 1
Students are charged a fee for any course attempted for a third or subsequent time at WTAMU
other than a non-degree credit developmental course. Courses exempted from the fee are as
follows:
  • Thesis and dissertation courses;
  • Courses that may be repeated for credit because they involve different or more
  • advanced content each time they are taken, including but not limited to, individual
  • music lessons, theater practicum, music performance, ensembles, certain
  • physical education and kinesiology courses and studio art;
  • Independent study courses, except when the independent study course has the
  • same content as a course the student has already taken two or more times;
  • Special topics courses that may be repeated for credit with different content,
  • except when a special topics course has the same content as a course the
  • student has already taken two or more times;
  • Continuing education courses that must be repeated to retain professional
  • certification.

The counting period for repeat courses at WTAMU begins with the Fall 2002 semester. Thus,
repeated courses for consideration are attempted courses which appear on a student’s WTAMU
transcript with a grade or an “X” or “XF” from September 1, 2002, to the present and which do not
meet the exemptions as stated above (per the guidelines from the Texas Higher Education
Coordinating Board).
