Course Repetition

COURSE REPETITION

A student may not repeat a course for units toward graduation in which s/he has received a grade of "C," "P," or higher unless an allowable exception applies. 

If a student receives a grade of "D," "F," or "NP," the student may repeat the course once and receive a new grade; however, the listing of the original grade will remain on the student's permanent record.  In no event may a student repeat a course more than two times, even if he or she receives a "W," unless a special circumstance applies.  The course repetition will be annotated on the transcript and all work will remain legible ensuring a true and complete academic history.  The units of the original course will not be counted toward graduation and will not be included in computing the grade point average.    The course repetition policy applies to courses taken in other accredited colleges or universities and similar policies at other colleges and universities will be honored.

COURSE REPETITION SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES

Students may be eligible to repeat a course if one of the following exceptions applies.  Students must submit a Course Repeat Petition, and documentation supporting the reason for the request, to the Office of Admissions and Records.  Submission of the completed petition does not guarantee approval.

  • Repeating a course to meet a legally mandated training requirement as a condition of continued or volunteer employment. Regardless of whether or not a substandard grade (D, F, FW, NC, or NP) was previously earned, the grade and unit credit shall be included each time for the purpose of calculating the g.p.a. Documentation must be attached to certify that course repetition is necessary to complete legally mandated training.
  • Repeating a course beyond the maximum times allowed, regardless of substandard or non-substandard grade earned, due to extenuating circumstances. I understand the previous grade and unit credit will be disregarded in computing the g.p.a., and that a withdrawal is a non-evaluative symbol and does not alleviate a substandard grade. Course repetition based on extenuating circumstance may only occur once. Extenuating circumstances is defined as verified cases of accident, illness, or other life changing events beyond the control of the student. Documentation verifying extenuating circumstance must be attached.
  • Repeating a course due to a significant lapse of time (at least 36 Months), where a passing grade (CR, P, or C or better) was previously earned. The institution I am transferring to requires this course be taken recently and it has been at least 36 months since I last took the course. If approved, I understand all coursework shall remain on the student’s permanent record. The previous grade and credit will be disregarded in the computing of the g.p.a. Course repetition based on significant lapse of time may only occur once. Documentation verifying the transfer institution recency requirement must be attached.
