Three Repeat Rule

The Texas Legislature enacted legislation that does not allow universities to receive state funding for courses containing the same content attempted by a student more than twice at the same Texas state-supported institution of higher education. This regulation not only includes completing a class more than twice, but also includes classes that were withdrawn and dropped after the official semester census date.

Upon the third or subsequent attempt to take the same course at Texas A&M University-San Antonio, a Three-Repeat Fee of $100.00 per semester credit hour will be assessed for courses that fall into this category.

There are a few courses that are designated as repeatable such as Special Topics and Thesis courses.
