Respond to below questions with complete and thoughtful answers.
When students have multiple experiences with a course, there are concerns as to why the student is not successful. Repeating courses can cost a student valuable time and money. As you submit a request to take a course for the fourth time, your thorough and thoughtful answers to the below questions are critical in helping to make the decision.

Why do you want to take this course? How does it fit into your educational and career goals?
- Explain if the course is a requirement for your major.
- If it is not a requirement, indicate why you need to take this course again.

 
Have you met with your advisor to discuss taking this course again and outlining an educational plan for this semester? Provide a detailed, brief summary of the meeting and include the date of the meeting.
 

Please identify the issues or circumstances that prevented  you from being successful in previous attempts at this course. Be sure to address each attempt. Remember, if you cannot identify what went wrong in previous attempts, you will not know what to change this time around. 

 
If granted permission to register for this course, how will you achieve a successful outcome? Explain what you will do differently this time around. Please give specific and measurable strategies you will implement. Examples are provided below:
- I will reduce my hours at work to 10 hours per week.
- I will include 6-9 hours of study time in my schedule.
- I will visit the tutoring center 2 times a week.
- I will meet with my faculty during office hour every other week.
