Repeating a Course (Grade Change)

A student may repeat a credit course no more than three times total and request that the Division of Registration and Records apply the highest grade earned in the computation of the cumulative GPA. If the student does not submit the request for grade replacement, the repeated course grades will be included in the grade point average.

Note: Repeated courses must be taken at the same campus.

There are two situations in which you may repeat a course.

  1. GPA improvement. A credit course may be taken no more than three times total. Upon successful completion of a repeated course and upon request, the college will adjust the record to reflect the highest of the decimal grades used in the GPA computation. The student will be credited only once for the class. No more than two attempted grades may be selected for exclusion in the GPA computation.
  2. Multi-quarter continuous training courses use the same course number from quarter to quarter. In this situation, credits earned are cumulative and all grades are used to determine the GPA.
    • Note: Students planning to transfer to four–year institutions should be aware that many four–year institutions have strict policies regarding course repeats. It is recommended that students check with the Advising Office before repeating a class to determine potential course transfer difficulties.
