Course Repeats

Where do I pay the course repeat fee?  How much is it?  What does it do?

As of Autumn 2019, course repeat fees have been replaced with a Student Support Fee.  This fee is a flat $25 fee assessed to every student each semester as part of their registration bill. 

Initial grades will be marked as repeated and remain on the transcript, but they will not be used to in the GPA calculation.  Grades of AUD, I, N, NC, NCR, NP, NF, W, WP, or WF may not be used to replace grades. An F grade will be used to replace grades.  If the last grade received is an F, no credit is given for previous passing grades. All courses repeated remain on the permanent record but only the last grade received is used to determine credits earned. Only the last grade received is used in calculating the grade point average.

If students receiving federal financial aid repeat a course previously passed they can only receive financial aid to do so a second time. On a third attempt the course will not be counted in the enrollment status for determining aid eligibility.

If enrollment in a course is closed, a student who is repeating or auditing the course may be required by the instructor to drop the course. This rule grants enrollment preference to those students attempting to register for the course for the first time for credit. It is the responsibility of the student who is not allowed to remain in the course to formally drop the course to avoid a failing grade for that course.

Repeating a course in the School of Law is governed by a different policy.

What if I repeated a class prior to Autumn 2019?

In general, students who repeated courses between Autumn 2009 and Summer 2019 were automatically billed for repeated courses in their registration bills and the courses should have been marked accordingly on their transcripts.  However, if a student repeated a course and it is not marked on their transcript, they may contact the Registrar’s Office to determine why and if it can be adjusted.

What is a “repeatable” course?

Some courses allow students to register for the same course twice or more and continue to earn credit.  Examples include research, thesis, and some independent studies or internships.  Some special topics courses may also be repeatable.  If a course is repeatable, it will be reflected in the Catalog course description. 

If a course is repeatable, the course repeat policy does not apply unless the number of allowed repeatable credits is exceeded.  For instance, if a 3-credit course is repeatable up to 6 credits and a student takes the course three times, the oldest 3-credits would be excluded from the GPA.
