Retaking a Course

A student may retake a course if her or his grade or mark is F, R, D-, D or D+. If the course is retaken at St. Thomas, only the higher grade will be used to compute the GPA. Credit will not be given more than once for the same course. Both notations, however, will remain on the transcript.

If the course is retaken elsewhere, the student must obtain preapproval from the relevant department to confirm that the course is equivalent to the course originally taken at St. Thomas.

If the student earns a C- or higher after taking the off-campus course, the course can transfer to St. Thomas to fulfill a requirement, but credit will not be given for the course the second time and the St. Thomas grade will not be replaced in the GPA. Both notations, however, will be included on the transcript.
