Repeating Courses

Undergraduate Students

An undergraduate course in which a student earned a grade of C or higher cannot be repeated for a letter grade. It can only be audited.

 If the student earned a C-, D+, D, F, CR, or NC in a course, the student can repeat the course for a letter grade but cannot place it on credit/no credit.

**For the spring and fall 2020 and spring 2021, students may place repeated courses on credit/no credit.

  • The following rules apply to each of the first three different courses repeated for the first time:

 a.) If the first grade was a C-, D, D+, or F, then the higher of the two grades earned in the repeated course will be calculated in the grade point average, and credits will be earned only once.

 b.) If the course was placed on credit/no credit when taken the first time, then the letter grade earned from the repeat will be calculated in the grade point average, and credits will be earned only once.

  • All grades earned in subsequent course repeats, whether they pertain to courses repeated once already or courses repeated for the first time, will be calculated in the grade point average. However, no course may be counted more than once toward the credits needed for a degree.
  • The transcript will show all grades earned, both those calculated in the grade point average and those not calculated.

Graduate Students

In general, graduate students may not repeat courses for credit. The following exceptions apply:

Student may repeat graduate level courses for credit and replace the earlier grade under the following conditions:

  • A student who has gone beyond the 6-year degree completion limit may repeat a course so that it is within the time limit.
  • A student who originally received a B-, C+, C, C-, D+ may repeat the course so long as the student
  1. Has not previously repeated a course for credit,
  2. Has an overall GPA of 3.0 or above,
  3. Has not received any Fs, and

This exception is allowed only once during the Masters program.

A student in the MS with Teacher Certification who receives a C- or below must repeat the course to remain in good standing with the Certification Program. According to CARE policies the student cannot continue with her/his program of study until the course has been repeated and the grade is above a C.

The Dean of the Graduate Division, in consultation with the student’s advisor, may allow additional exceptions in extenuating circumstances, but in that case, both grades will be counted in the student’s GPA.

Each student’s transcript will show all grades earned, regardless of whether they are counted in the GPA.
