Repeating a Course

A student may repeat a course for any reason. When a course is repeated, the most recent grade will be used in calculating the cumulative grade point average (GPA) in place of the original grade. All grades will remain on the transcript even if they are not counted in the cumulative GPA.

There are some courses which will be counted in the cumulative GPA each time they are taken; the original grade is not replaced by the second one. Such courses are designated in the course descriptions with an R. If a student wants to have the previous grade in such a course replaced by a later grade, special arrangements must be made with the department chairperson.

Financial aid will only pay for one repetition of a passed course. For financial aid purposes, a "D" grade is considered passing. Review the Financial Aid policy section for additional information.
