Repeated Courses

You are responsible for the accuracy of your registration. You must advise the individual conducting the registration if courses are being repeated to ensure your academic average, accumulated hours and academic standing will be calculated correctly. Because repeat grades affect so many forms of financial aid and scholarships, you should consult with the Office of Financial Aid before registering for a repeat course.

You may not repeat for credit a course that is a prerequisite for a course already completed successfully. In addition, you may only repeat a course three times. After the fourth course attempt, you will be restricted from registering for the class again.

Credit for repeated courses is recorded as follows:

  1. Effective fall 2007, only the most recent repeat of a course is used in computing the GPA. However, grades in all attempts of a course appear on the transcript.
  2. Credits earned for any course will be applied only once toward degree requirements, no matter how often a course is repeated.

Individual academic units and programs may set more stringent conditions and restrictions regarding repeated courses.
