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 towards 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 grounds for probationary status or termination of degree candidacy.
