Repetition of Courses

Effective fall 2012, a student who has received a passing grade of “D” or better in a course may not repeat that course. Students may repeat a course in which they earned a grade of “D” if it is a prerequisite course requiring a minimum grade of “C”, or if a minimum grade of “C” is a requirement in the student’s declared major. Students who do not receive a passing grade in a course may repeat that course. For courses repeated subsequent to the effective date of this policy, during a student’s academic career at the University a maximum of five (5) courses may be repeated.

No single undergraduate course may be repeated more than two (2) times to include withdrawals (Ws), for a maximum of three (3) attempts. No single graduate course may be repeated more than (1) one time, to include withdrawals (Ws), for a maximum of two (2) attempts. All grades received will be recorded on the student’s permanent academic record. For repeats of courses subsequent to the effective date of this policy, any undergraduate student who has exhausted their three (3) attempts and has not passed a required course in their major field of study will be dismissed from that major. The University may accept transfer credit for undergraduate General Education Core requirement courses.

Financial aid implications for repeated courses should be discussed with the Office of Financial Aid.

All grades earned by the student are a part of his/her official academic record and will appear on his/her transcript.
