A student may repeat a course with the intent of improving the grade previously earned. In computing the quality point average of a student who has repeated one or more courses, only the last grade received in the repeated course or courses will be used. The hours attempted will be counted only once, provided that the number of repeats in any single course does not exceed two (three attempts). In the event that a student attempts a course more than three times, the third and subsequent grades shall be used in determining quality point average.
In order that grade point averages may be adjusted appropriately, the student repeating a course may file a course repeat form with the Admissions and Records Office.
Veterans or other eligible persons repeating courses for which they have a passing grade (“D” or higher) and for which they have been paid are cautioned not to claim this course for pay the second time.
Students may be permitted to repeat a course in which a grade of “B” or higher was earned only with the approval of the Vice President for Student Learning.
