Academic Regulations

Repeating a Course

Students must repeat any ELS, Developmental Studies, prerequisite, Writing-Intensive or option/core /career course in which they earn a “D” or “F” grade. The choice of repeating any other course in which a “D” or “F” was earned is left to the discretion of the student. Additionally some academic programs may have special requirements. Normally, courses in which an “A,” “B,” or “C” have been earned should not be repeated. Both the original grade and the grade for the repeated course appear on the student’s transcript. When a course is repeated, the higher of the two grades is used when computing the cumulative average.
