Repeating Courses

Among recent changes to the Graduate Catalog is the possibility for Graduate Students to repeat some courses. Our department has adopted the new Graduate School policy:

Repeating Courses

A graduate student may repeat up to two courses in which they earned a grade of D or F.

  • The decision to repeat a course is made between the student and the advisor / major professor.
  • Each course may only be repeated once.
  • The original and repeat grades will be included in the calculation of the cumulative grade point average (GPA).
  • Credit hours will only be counted once towards meeting degree/program requirements.

Approval Process: To re-enroll in a class in order to improve an earned grade, the graduate student must complete a petition for consideration by the Dean of the Graduate School.
