Repeatable courses include independent research, independent study, topics courses and music performance courses. Unless it is specifically designated as repeatable, a course in which the student has received a qualifying grade may not be repeated for credit.
If a non-repeatable course is taken again, the regular tuition rate is charged, and the course is counted as part of the total credit load. All grades are counted in GPA calculations. The highest grade received in the repeated course fulfills the degree requirements, but hours earned toward degree requirements are counted only once.
All repeated courses appear on student transcripts. Automated advising tools (e.g. the Academic Progress Report) may show only first grade for the course.
