Repeating Courses

Repeating courses for credit

Students may repeat a course in which a grade of C or above was received only when permitted to do so by the Associate Dean and the department concerned, unless the course description states that the course may be repeated for credit. A petition must be submitted for approval to the Office of Graduate Studies by the Director of Graduate Studies. If such a course is repeated, both grades received remain on your record and are included in your degree grade-point average (GPA). The second taking of the course does not count toward degree requirements.

Courses that have been audited may not be retaken for credit.

When a grade of F is received for a course, the grade is included in the student’s grade-point average whether or not the course is repeated. Receiving a grade of F in a graduate course may be ground for probationary status or termination of degree candidacy.
