Repetition of Courses
In an authorized repetition of a course, the student will not receive additional credit hours. Only the most recent grade will be used in computing the GPA. However, for an accurate record of the student’s academic history, all attempts in the same course will be shown on the transcript. For courses taken at Benedictine University, students may repeat a course designated as a foundation course in which they receive a grade of “W,” “C,” “D,” or “F” no more than two times. Students may repeat a course that is not designated as a foundation course in which they receive a grade of “W,” “D,” or “F” no more than two times. If a student wishes to repeat a course originally taken at Benedictine University and in which an earned grade was received, the repeat must be a course at Benedictine University. A repeat may not be by independent study or by study at another institution. The Academic Standing Committee may provide exceptions to this policy. An earned grade is a grade of “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” “P,” and “F.”
Once a student has graduated their degree GPA is final. Students who have graduated may not repeat a course for credit in which they earned a grade of “A,” “B,” or “C” previously. A student who has graduated may only audit a course in which they previously earned credit.
Tuition and fees for repeated classes are charged at the current rate.
