A. Purpose

To establish the standards for repeating a course in the College of Graduate Studies.

B. Scope

The scope of this policy includes all students enrolled in any degree or certificate
programs in the College of Graduate Studies.

C. Definitions

  1. “Required Course” refers to courses that are required for program completion.
    “Elective Course” refers to courses that students select to fulfill elective credit
    requirements for program completion.

D. Policy Statement

  1. Students receiving a grade of less than “C” in a required course must repeat the
    course and receive at least a “C” in order to receive credit for the course. Grades
    for both the original and repeated courses will appear on the transcript with
    repeat courses being noted as such.
  2. Students receiving a grade of less than “C” in an elective course have the option
    to re-take that course and receive at least a “C” in order to receive credit for the
    course. The schedule of offerings for elective courses may not allow the student
    to retake the same course, in this case students may take a different elective
    course at the same credit value to satisfy program requirements.
  3. For courses that use “Pass/Fail” for grading, a course must be repeated if the
    student receives a “Fail” grade.
  4. Both the original and repeated grades are utilized in the calculation of the grade
    point average (GPA). Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher while enrolled
    in the College of Graduate Studies. If a student falls below the 3.0 GPA threshold,
    they will be referred to the Committee on Academic and Professional Progress
    (CAPP).
