Students must repeat any required courses in which a grade of F or W is received. Undergraduate students will only be allowed to repeat courses in which they received a grade of C- or below and graduate students will only be allowed to repeat courses in which they received a grade of B- or below. In these instances, the better of the two grades is calculated into the GPA. The lower grade will include a double asterisk indicating that the course has been repeated. Both original and repeated credits will be counted as attempted credits in rate of progress calculations. In certain instances other than those described above, a previously passed course may be repeated in order to improve the student’s GPA. For Federal financial aid purposes, the second attempt may be counted towards the student’s enrollment status. A student who wishes to take previously passed course work more than one time must obtain academic approval and should consult with the Financial Aid office before doing so as it may affect their financial aid eligibility for the term. A fee will be charged to repeat a class. Students who repeat courses are encouraged to consult their Academic Advisor on how repeated courses may adversely affect their satisfactory academic progress. Students are required to contact the Student Accounts Department regarding repeated courses that have extended the length of a degree program resulting in additional charges.
