Can I retake a course?

Retaking a Course

Undergraduate level courses with fixed content can be retaken to affect your accumulative grade point average.  Undergraduate courses that are retaken to improve a grade will be automatically identified at the time of registration. Retaking the course removes the hours and the effect of the earlier grade from the calculation of the grade point average.  However, all grades are printed on the student's academic record (transcript).  The later grade is the one calculated in the grade point average even if it is lower than the first, and only the last instance’s credit hours are accepted toward any requirements for graduation.  The number of times that a student is allowed to retake an undergraduate course for the purpose of improving the grade is restricted to a maximum of two in addition to the first attempt.  Withdrawals are not counted as an attempt. Refer to the Undergraduate Catalog for more information.
