Academic Advising Hold for Two Unsuccessful Course Attempts

In accordance with the 3-Attempt Policy listed below, those students who have TWO (2) unsuccessful attempts in a course in which the policy applies after the completion of the spring 2017 semester, now have (or will have) an Academic Advising Hold placed on their account. Please meet with an Academic Advisor in the Office of Student Success and Academic Services in Enterprise Hall, Room 008 to have the hold removed. You may come in for a walk-in or call 703-993-1880 to make an appointment.

Three Attempt Policy (

Students have three opportunities to take School of Business Core classes. If a student does not successfully complete a core class in three attempts with a grade of C or higher, they are terminated from the School of Business. Please keep in mind that the most recent attempt is what counts, not necessarily the best attempt. Students who have 2 unsuccessful attempts have a hold place on their account that requires the student to meet with an academic advisor in order to review the course and have the hold lifted.

The accounting major is the only major with a three attempt policy specifically for this major. Students in the accounting major have three attempts to successfully pass accounting classes with a grade of C or higher or they are terminated from the accounting major. Accounting students terminated from the Accounting major are able to select a different business major.
