Repeating a Class
Rules for Course Repeats - For Courses Repeated Summer 2011 or Before
1. A student receiving a grade lower than a B in an undergraduate course may repeat the course.
2. If a student takes a course for the first time at UCM and repeats the course at UCM the higher of the two grades will be utilized in computing the grade-point average; however, the lower grade will remain as a matter of transcript record. The credit for the course will only count once in earned hours.
3. If a student takes a course for the first time at UCM and then later repeats the course at a different institution, both grades will count in the cumulative grade point average (the UCM GPA is not affected by course work completed at another institution). This will have less of an impact on grade point average than the grade replacement. The credit for the course will only count once in earned hours.
4. Courses taken at another institution and subsequently repeated at the same institution are transferred using the same rules applicable for Central Missouri courses - the higher of the two grades will be utilized in computing the grade-point average; however, the lower grade will remain as a matter of transcript record and the credit for the course will only count once in earned hours.
5. The same course taken at two different transfer institutions will have the grades averaged. The credit for the course will only count once in earned hours.
6. A course may be taken more than twice only if a grade of F has been earned both times, unless departmental requirements stipulate otherwise.
7. If two consecutive grades of D are earned, or if two consecutive grades of F are earned, only the second will be used in computing the grade point average.
8. If it becomes necessary for a course to be taken a third time, the two highest grades will be averaged into the grade point average. The credit for the course will only count once in earned hours.
9. A course may not be repeated for the purpose of raising a grade point average if a more advanced course in a sequence has been completed. (Example: FIN 2801 is a prerequisite in a sequence to FIN 3801. A student takes FIN 2801 and earns a D and then takes FIN 3801 and earns a C. If that student then goes back and repeats FIN 2801 and earns a B, both the D and B will count in their grade point average. The B will not replace the D.)
10. Repeating a course under the Pass-Fail option will not negate the initial grade received.
11. Credit hours for repeated courses will be counted only once in the number of course hours earned toward a degree.
