Is it possible to repeat a course I have passed?

The following section addresses retaking classes an L&S undergraduate student has already passed on a refresher basis.

Present legislation allows undergraduate students to repeat any course with all grades ("A" through "F") and their associated grade points included in the grade point average.  However, credit will not be granted for the same course twice.  Students who wish to refresh their knowledge may repeat courses, but not for credit.  All instances of the course will calculate in the semester GPA and in the university cumulative GPA.   Repeated courses do not calculate in L&S requirements for quality work (i.e., GPA minimums for Intermediate/Advanced work and GPA requirements in the major).  
  • Credits carried on a refresher basis count toward the maximum credits permitted each term/semester.
  • Grades in refresher-basis courses count only in the university grade point average, which may be significant in determining a student's probationary status and eligibility to continue.
  • Repeating a course will not remove the prior grade(s) earned for that course from the student's record.
Repeating a failed course does not remove the earlier failure from the student's record or from his or her cumulative GPA.
