Course Repeat Policy Student limited to attempt any course a maximum of two (2) times. Attempts are defined as earning a grade in a class or late-dropping the class. If a student withdraws from the University (Policy 56-30) these courses will not be counted as one of the two allowed attempts on given courses. A course in which a grade of C or better was obtained may only be repeated if written evidence of consultation is obtained from the student’s adviser. Grades for all courses repeated are factored into CGPA.
