Can a student be banned from
a major? My college has adopted
a rule, according to which if
someone fails the same class
three times, they get banned from
a major and reduced to sophomore,
and they have to choose another major.Does a college have a right to do it?
Of course, it does! Why do you need to call yourself an expert in some field if you cannot pass one class?
You need to choose another field then. Nobody wants such a “specialist.”
If you cannot pass a class from the third attempt, you will probably never pass it, plus it worsens your GPA. You also cannot pursue your major without knowing this subject. Maybe another major will be more suitable for you, and this requirement will help you to find it.
|However, being reduced to a sophomore is not fair; the number of credits you earned should be considered instead.
If you fail a course, you do not earn a credit but save your class status.
Also, if you study at a public college, this rule helps save the public finance without wasting it on “bad” students.
I think they have it in every university: 3 attempts, you fail them, you cannot take that class anymore.
Also, if this class is necessary for your major, you cannot comply with the requirements without passing that class.
Colleges have a right to change their rules, nothing can be done about that.
My college has a better way of dealing with it.
If a student fails a class 3 times, they can take it from another college.
I think they are just scaring you but won’t actually do it.
Perhaps they will tell you what to do next if you fail that class 3 times.
Yes, it does, because you get a degree for being competent, not just because you want it.
Yes, colleges can kick students out of a major for not passing a single class, and they often do.
Of course! All colleges have their own rules. In my college, a student gets banned from the major unless they get straight B’s.
