Course Repeat Policy

A graduate student can repeat a course and earn a satisfactory grade. All course attempts are recorded on the transcript, but only the most recent attempt for credit will count toward fulfillment of the graduate degree program and be included in the institutional GPA. This policy provides an opportunity for a student to raise their GPA by re-taking a course and earning a higher grade, but students must be aware that the most recent grade will count even if it is lower. Courses in which a grade that is less than C (i.e., D, F, WF, or U) is earned will not count toward the fulfillment of the respective degree requirements. With the exception of a grade of U, grades less than C will also count for GPA calculation purposes. Courses in which grades of D, F, WF, and U are earned must be repeated.
