Course Repeat Policy

Repeating a Course

A student may repeat any course one time. When repeating a course, the grade earned shall be the grade of record, but the grades of all courses attempted will remain on a student’s official transcript.

Students who repeat a course will have only the last grade counted toward their GPA, whether or not the last grade is higher. Grades of I, W, AU, CR or NC do not replace an earlier grade.

Repeating a course more than once is allowed only with the approval of the student’s academic advisor and completion of the repeat limit approval form. In cases when the course is not in the advisor’s unit, it is recommended the advisor consult with the unit

Please note: Many undergraduate secondary admission programs and post-graduate professional programs routinely recalculate students’ undergraduate GPAs to include repeated coursework. The inclusion of repeated grades may lower your overall GPA when applying to such programs. Students should consult with prospective programs regarding their policies before applying.

Registering for Two Sections of the Same Course. Students may not be simultaneously enrolled in two sections of the same course specifically designated as repeatable for credit by a department or unit.
