Repeat Course Policy

Students can repeat a course in which they received an unsatisfactory grade. Some courses allow a limited number of attempts, and if that is the case, it will be stated in the course description in the catalog. All attempts will always remain on the transcript as part of the student’s official record.  However, once repeated, the grade earned in the most recent attempt at the class will be the one factored into the student’s overall GPA. Any previous grades for that course will be excluded from the GPA calculation.

Beginning in the fall 2018 semester, students will be limited to three repeats of a course. Dropping or withdrawing (W grade) from a course is not counted as a repeat in this policy. Permission for a fourth attempt must be requested via your academic advisor.
