In general, students may repeat a course when a grade of B, C, D, or F has previously been earned. When the same course is repeated, the highest grade is calculated in the cumulative GPA. (Note that all grades remain posted on the official student transcript.) However, federal financial aid funds may be used only one time to repeat previously passed courses, for which the student has already earned a passing letter grade. For example, if you have passed a course with a grade of D and have received credit for the course, you may repeat the course to improe your grade only one time and receive federal financial aid funds to pay for the previously passed course.
In some degree programs, students may be required to retake a course as many times as necessary to achieve a grade of C in order to advance to the next level course. However, you will not receive financial aid for the same course more than two times, if you have received credit for the course.
In some cases, it is possible that your total amount of financial aid may cover your account balance when repeating courses. Your financial aid award will be calculated based on the number of eligible financial aid credit hours, excluding non-repeated courses. If you have student loans, you must be enrolled in at least six (6) credits of non-repeated coursework to receive your student loan.
