Repeating Courses

Unless restricted by a specific program’s requirements, students may repeat any failed course as many times as they wish. In each case, the more recent grade is counted for the cumulative GPA, although all grades are recorded on the student’s transcript. The student receives credit for a course only once regardless of how many times it is repeated.

The Higher Education Act, Federal Financial Aid and Title IV dictates that students may repeat a course only once if they have previously passed the course, unless a second repeat of a previously passed course is necessary, due to program requirements, in which case the student must have full-time status exclusive of the credits for the repeated course. Programs that operate under specific guidelines from outside accrediting agencies may limit the number of times a student may repeat a course.

If a student does not earn the required minimum grade of C (2.00) in WRT 101 the student must repeat the course. If the required grade is not earned on the second attempt, WRT 101 must be retaken every semester thereafter, without exception, until a minimum grade of C (2.00) has been achieved.

Note: If repeating a course for the third time, the student must have 12 additional credits to be considered full-time.
