Repetition of Courses to Improve Grades

Date Implemented: April 17, 2007
Date Revised: May 02, 2007

A graduate course for which a student has received a grade of C or better may not be repeated to improve the grade for the course. The Dean of the program may be petitioned for an exception to this requirement. If the course is approved by the Dean for a repeat, the credit will be given only once for the course, the higher grade will be used in the calculation of the GPA, and all notations of the course and grades will appear on the student transcript. Copies of approved exceptions will be retained in the student’s file and by the Office of the Dean.

Important Note: In the absence of a more stringent policy at the school or college level the University Graduate Academic Policies apply. Should a graduate program not have a specific policy or should there be omissions or gaps in the policy for a specific graduate school program, the University Graduate Policy shall govern.

The Graduate Academic Policies are the responsibility of the Graduate Curriculum Committee Convener. For additions or revisions contact
