Policy Provisions

Repeating Courses


Although no course grade is ever removed from the permanent transcript, a student may repeat courses for the purpose of raising his/her grade point average. University policy prohibits students from repeating a course in which they have earned a grade of ' A', unless the course is one in which there is a change of subject matter and the course has been designated “repeatable for credit”. Courses that are repeatable for credit are identified as such in the course description.

 

Students may repeat up to six courses or 18 hours (whichever comes first) in which the original grade was a ‘B’ or lower. No course may be repeated more than once without permission of the faculty advisor and the approval of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. A repeat grade in a course will become a standing grade for that course even if it is lower than the first grade received in the course. All repeat grades will be included in the calculation of the retention/graduation grade point average even if the most recent grade(s) is lower than the previous grade(s) earned. All first attempt grades will still appear on the student’s permanent record, but will not be calculated into the student’s retention/graduation grade point average or total hours earned. An individual course can only be repeated a maximum of two times (total of three attempts). Students who repeat courses/hours beyond those under the Repeat Policy grade replacement may do so with both the original grades and repeat grades included in the calculation of the retention/graduation grade point average. Note: A Cumberland student may not repeat course work at any other institution, nor through a Directed Study class or an on-line class offered by this institution.
