Repeating Courses

A student who fails a course may take that course a second time.

If the student passes, she will receive credit for the course and the grade from the second iteration of the course will factor into the grade point average. The grade for the first iteration of the course remains on the transcript and is also factored into the grade point average.

A student who passes a course may take that course a second time only with permission of the instructor of the second iteration of the course. If this happens, the student will not receive credit for the second iteration of the course. The grade for the second iteration of the course will be noted on the transcript, but will not factor into the grade point average. The grade for the first iteration of the course remains on the transcript and is factored into the grade point average. Students considering this possibility should consult with their class dean.
