6.14. Course Repetition Policy

Students may retake any course for potential grade improvement subject to the following conditions:

  • Students will receive academic credit for the course only once.
  • Grades for each enrollment in the course will be recorded on the student’s permanent record.
  • Only the repeated (most recent) course grade will be counted toward the cumulative and major grade-point averages for purposes of meeting graduation requirements.
  • Courses that can be repeated for credit (i.e. Special Topics courses with the same course number but different course titles) are not included in the policy.

Students should know that, when repeating a class, the honor code prohibits students from handing in the same assignment again that they submitted when they took the course previously.

This policy pertains only to courses taken at Oglethorpe University.
