Repeat a Class: Do I need to repeat a course?

There are certain situations in which a course will need to be repeated for a student to complete a program.

  • At the undergraduate level, major and minor coursework must be completed with a grade of “C” or higher.
  • At the graduate level, a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher is needed to complete your program.
    • Some graduate courses or programs employ the grade of "C." In courses/programs that do, "C" is the lowest possible acceptable final grade. However, a final grade of "C" in a course may impact the Academic Standing of a student and may require the student to repeat the course(s) in which the grade of "C" is earned.
    • For graduate courses that do not offer the grade of "C," a student must earn a final course grade of B (Meets Performance Requirements – MP) or A (Exceeds Performance Requirements - EP) to move on to the next course in the program.

When a course is repeated, the higher grade will replace the lower grade within your cumulative GPA. Please note, however, that both attempts will be displayed on your academic records.
