Liberal Arts Division Course Repetition Policy

According to Wake Tech's Course Repetition Policy, a student may enroll in the same course up to three times during his or her academic career.

If you attempt to enroll or register for a course in one of the following Liberal Arts Division subjects for the fourth time, you will receive a registration error message that you have exceeded the number of allowed attempts for that course:

  • English (ENG 110, 111, 112, 114, 125, 231, 232, 241, 242, 261, 262)
  • Anthropology
  • Art
  • Communication
  • Drama
  • French
  • History
  • Humanities
  • Music
  • Philosophy
  • Political Science
  • Psychology
  • Religion
  • Sociology
  • Spanish

To request permission to take a course in one of the above subjects a fourth time: 

  • Open the Course Repetition Request form in the student portal. A Wake Tech student ID and password required. (If you have trouble clicking through on the link, right-click on it to copy the link and paste it into the URL bar in a new browser window.)
  • Follow the instructions to complete the form, and submit your request to take the course a fourth time.

After your completed form has been received, either Liberal Arts Interim Dean Kimberly Eaton or Associate Dean Lee Corbett will reply in two to three business days to schedule a time to talk with you to discuss and consider your request.
