Academics - Repeating a Course

A student may repeat a course regardless of the grade or grades previously earned in that course. However, full tuition is charged each time a course is repeated, but credit for a given course may be earned only once, even if the course is passed more than once. When a repeated course is failed, any previously earned credit for that course is lost. Only the most recent grade earned in a repeated course counts towards the accumulative grade-point average, even if the most recent grade is lower than one previously received for that course. The grades for all attempts of a course taken for credit appear on the student’s transcript.

There may be limitations on the number of times that specific courses may be repeated in specific programs. Students should contact their academic advisor, the associate dean of their college or their program director about such limitations.
