This page explains our course repeat policy, including how repeated courses will impact your GPA, how they appear on your transcript, the number of times a course can be repeated, and other considerations.
- A student who has taken a course for credit or who has obtained a W in a course is permitted to repeat that course once.
- Students may repeat no more than two courses during their undergraduate careers.
- Students may not repeat a course more than once.
- Students may not repeat courses in a designated sequence after taking more advanced courses.
- Credits: When a student repeats a course, the grades from both attempts are recorded on the transcript, but only the credits from the second attempt are counted.
- Grading: The two grades (from the first and second attempts) are averaged before calculated in the cumulative grade point average.
- For Chinese nationals students, the credits for a repeated course will be counted toward their extra 8-extra credits beyond 128 total credits.
