The Course Repeat Option provides students who have done poorly the opportunity to repeat courses and be able to calculate their new grades in place of their previous grades. Thus, if a course is repeated using this option, the grade of the most recent attempt of that course will be used in calculating the cumulative GPA and for completion of program requirements. The original course will remain on the official transcript for historical purposes only.
If you are receiving financial aid, you should verify with the Financial Aid office that repeating a course won’t affect your eligibility status.
Repeating "D" or "F" graded courses
Repeating Courses graded "C-" or Higher
Students may choose to repeat courses in which a grade of a C- or higher is earned a maximum of two (2) times (depending on whether there are any restrictions specific to that course - see course descriptions in the Undergraduate Catalogue to determine if restrictions apply). However, courses repeated under these circumstances will have all earned grades calculated into the cumulative GPA and overall credits earned and Course Repeat Option will not apply.
Note: Effective Summer 2005, this new comprehensive Course Repeat Option replaced the existing Course Repeat and Freshman Forgiveness policy. The Course Repeat Option is not retroactive to courses already repeated under prior policies. Students repeating courses originally taken on quarters or that do not have the same title, course abbreviation, or catalog number as the original course must submit a Course Repeat Form to All-in-1 in MC 116.
