Undergraduate Repeat Study

The two studies must cover the same topic, but may be delivered in different ways. For example, if you took an online algebra course and did not do well, you may replace that course with an independent study or cross registration at another college if the replacement course also is an algebra study at the same level. You will indicate both the original study and the study that replaces it. Your mentor must approve the repeat.

When you complete the repeat study form  and repeat a study, the more recent grade  for the repeated study replaces the original for the purpose of the award of credit and calculation of a grade point average (G.P.A.).  Both the original and the repeated study will appear on the transcript,  the original course remains a part of the transcript with a code of RP to denote that it has been repeated.  Only the most recent of these studies can be included in your degree program.

Please note that while your G.P.A. calculation includes only the credits for the most recent grade earned, your academic satisfactory academic progress calculation includes both the credit earned for the more recent grade and the previous grade.
