- Consider the pros and cons of repeating courses carefully before doing so. You should only repeat a course if you are totally confident that you can improve your grade.
- You may only repeat grades of “D” “F” and “NP”.
- You may repeat a maximum of 16 units.
- The original grade earned remains on the transcript, but will not factor into your GPA if it is successfully repeated later.
- If a student exceeds 16 units of repeat coursework, future repeated course grades will be averaged together.
- If you receive a “D”, “F”, or ”W” in a sequential course, DO NOT enroll in the subsequent course. You must successfully repeat the first course in order to continue in the sequence. NOTE: This is NOT true of MMW; you may continue in the sequence and re-take MMW 1 at a later date. A “D” grade is considered passing and will complete the requirement.
When applying to law and most medical schools, all repeated course grades are counted into the overall GPA (both the original grade and the repeated grade.)
