General Anatomy and Physiology Repeat Policy (10806177)
Policy Effective Beginning Summer Semester 2012-2013 (1130)
Students dropping/withdrawing ("W") or failing ("F") General A&P will NOT be allowed to enroll in and/or repeat General A&P without completing one of the following courses with the grade requirement listed:
- Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology 10806175--Grade of "B" or better
- Body Structure & Function 10806120--Grade of "B" or better
- Principles of Biology 20806236--Grade of "C" or better
- General Chemistry 10806134--Grade of "C" or better
- College Chemistry 20806209--Grade of "C" or better
Students who successfully completed one of the courses listed above prior to enrolling in General A&P but did not pass at the established level must repeat the remediation course or successfully complete an alternate course from the list above before enrolling in General A&P for the second time.
Students who do not successfully complete ("C" grade or better) General A&P after two attempts, will not be eligible to re-enroll in the course. A student wishing to enroll for a third time must schedule an appeal meeting with the Dean of Health and Public Safety Division.
NOTE: The old policy stated that if a student was remediating (taking Fundamentals of A&P or Body Structure and Function because the student received an F-grade in Gen. A&P or withdrew from A&P) the student would need to get a grade of C or better to take Gen. A&P for a second time. And, we will grandfather any student who did receive a C or better prior to June 2012 in either Fundamentals of A&P or Body Structure and Function. However, if they haven’t remediated prior to June 2012, students who now take Fundamentals or Body Structure will need to receive a grade of B or better. This new grade requirement holds true even if they took General A&P under the old policy.
