Repeating Courses and Replacing Grades
effective Fall 2014
Students may repeat a course in which they earned a grade that is less than C (F, D+, D, C‐ or
U). The grades from all course attempts will be used in the calculation of the student’s grade point
average, and the total attempted hours will increase with each repeat. However, students will earn
hours for only one of the successful attempts.
Students have the option to replace the grades in a maximum of two of the repeated courses
(up to 8 hours) and use the new grades in the calculation of the grade‐point average. The grades
for the initial attempts will remain on the student’s permanent record and appear on the student’s
transcript, but will not calculate into the grade‐point average. The credit hours from all attempts
will count in the student’s attempted hours.
Repeating courses may negatively affect the student’s ability to satisfy the Financial Aid and
Good Academic Standing Completion Ratio standards. Students wishing to repeat a course and/or
replace the grade must submit the appropriate form in OneStop Academic Services.
