Approved by the president through the provost, and transmitted to the executive vice chancellor for academic affairs on June 11, 2001.

D 1241-1242 Two-Tries Policy in the College of Engineering Chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2000-2002. Posted on the Faculty Council web site on April 20, 2001. On May 4, 2001, Katy B. Zarolia, a voting member of the Council from the Cabinet of College Councils, filed a protest to the proposed Two-Tries Policy in the College of Engineering (D 1271). The item was introduced as emergency legislation at the regular meeting of the 2000-2001 Faculty Council on May 7, 2001. The Council voted to approve the legislation after deleting the second (and last) sentence: "No student may enroll in any such course more than twice." Thus the approved policy consisted of the following sentence: "An undergraduate in the College of Engineering may not enroll in any course required in his or her engineering degree plan more than once without written consent of an adviser in his or her department." Transmitted to the president through the provost on May 9, 2001. Approved by the president through the provost and transmitted to the executive vice chancellor for academic affairs on June 15, 2001.

Posted on the Faculty Council web site (http://www.utexas.edu/faculty/council/) on September 1, 2001. Paper copies are available on request from the Office of the General Faculty, FAC 22, F9500.
