If I repeat a course, how does that affect my GPA?

Once a course is repeated, only the higher grade earned is used to calculate the GPA. All courses remain on the student’s transcript. Department policies may require a student to repeat a major course if a grade is obtained that is less than the required minimum. Individual departments may also have tighter restrictions regarding repeated courses. Please consult your major department student handbook or department chair for more details.

 If you repeat the same course, you will only earn credit for the course once. Exceptions include only those courses that are intended to be repeated for credit. Pay attention when you register for classes to any repeat messages you may receive.
