REPEAT GRADE POLICY
Students who receive a grade of C-, D+, D, or D- grade may wish to repeat a course in attempt to upgrade the skill level achieved and to facilitate the transfer of credits to a senior college. Each department has its own guidelines and procedures for students who wish to repeat a D or C- grade, and not every department allows repetition of coursework. Special permission must be obtained from the appropriate academic department prior to repeating the course. (For rules regarding repeating F GRADES please see "F Grade Policy")
In addition to securing departmental approval, the following general conditions must be met:
- Students may repeat the same course only once;
- Both grades will appear on the students’ transcripts and will be included in the calculation of the GPA (even if students failed the course the second time);
- When a course is repeated, the credit for that course is not counted toward the degree a second time; and
- Generally students may repeat only three different courses in which a D- or C- grade was earned. Requests to repeat more than three D- or C- grade courses may be directed to the chairperson of the Academic Standing Committee. The decision of the committee is final.
NOTE: For the purposes of TAP, courses repeated through the D- and C- Grade Policy will not be counted when determining the student’s full-time or part-time financial aid eligibility.
