Policy

[horizontal rule]

A student may not repeat for credit a course in which he or she earned a grade of “C” or better.

However, effective fall 2008, a student earning a grade higher than a “D” in an undergraduate critical course(s) but less than the minimum grade required for that course(s) will be permitted to request to earn and have reflected in his or her academic record improved grade(s) for that course(s). The opportunity to repeat a critical tracking course, if an appeal is approved, is subject to course availability at the time the student attempts to register for the repeated course.

The impact on a student’s cumulative GPA of any course repeated under this policy will be determined by the applicable policy; see SSM 203–06: “Deletion of a “D” or “E” Grade Received by an Undergraduate Student in an Undergraduate Course” for additional information.

The student is responsible for preventing duplication from occurring or for gaining appropriate approval to repeat a critical tracking course.
