Repeating Courses

 

Most courses may be taken one time only for credit toward the BA, unless the course has been approved to be repeated for credit.

Students seeking to improve their grade point average may retake a course that has not been approved as repeatable for credit. While both instances of the course and the grades for each will appear on the transcript:

  • only the later of the two grades will be computed in the grade point average, and
  • if credit was given to the student the first time the course was taken, he or she will not receive additional credit when the course is repeated.

Students should also be aware that certain graduate schools will count both grades in the average.
