Repeating a Course
Students should consult their academic advisor or a college counselor when a course must be repeated. Students are limited to two enrollments (attempts) for any one course. The limitation does not apply to courses in the Master Course File identified as General Usage courses (e.g., 90, 195, 295). If a student requests enrollment in the same course for a third time, the need must be documented on the Third Enrollment in a Course form and approved by the academic dean. Please note that withdrawing or being withdrawn from a course is considered an “attempt” for purposes of repeating a course.
When a course is repeated, only the last grade earned is counted in the computation of the cumulative GPA and for satisfying curricular requirements. Students who withdraw from a course for which they previously had a passing grade will retain that passing grade for graduation purposes.
When a student has exhausted the number of course attempts allowed, the student may not be able to complete a degree or certificate program if the course in question is a required course.
