Repeating Courses/Course Forgiveness

If a student repeats a course once, the second grade awarded (excluding grades of AU, W, and WP) replaces the first grade in the computation of the cumulative grade point average. The grade and grade point average during the term in which the course was first attempted will not be affected.

When a course is repeated more than once, all grades for the course, excluding the first grade, will be employed in computation of the cumulative grade point average. Official records at the institution will list each course in which a student has enrolled. A repeated course will count only once toward the requirements for program completion. Students should be aware that some colleges do not honor course forgiveness.

Pell grant funds may not pay for some repeated courses. Contact a Student Services Specialist for your particular circumstances.
