Repeating Failed Courses

Students who fail a course are required to repeat the course and pass for eligibility to graduate.

Regulations on Repeating Courses

All repeat courses are noted in the transcript.

Students can repeat courses in which they received an “F”, “D”, “D+”, or “C-“. 

If a course is repeated once:

  • Only the new grade for the course is counted in the cumulative GPA
  • The previous grade for the course will remain in the Semester GPA of the semester that the course was first attempted in.

If a course is repeated more than once:

  • The first grade is not counted in the cumulative GPA
  • All subsequent grades for the course will be counted in the cumulative GPA
  • The Semester GPA of each semester that the course was repeated in remains unchanged.

Important:

A student who fails a course during a repeat attempt, but has passed that same course during a previous attempt, will still need to repeat the course until receiving a pass grade.

For a student who does not repeat a course that has been previously failed and hence who does not successfully complete a qualification, the fail result will be included in the GPA calculation.
