Undergraduate students may not repeat courses in which they have earned a grade of “C” or better or have transfer credit for. Graduate students may retake courses that have not met the scholastic standards of the Graduate School.
When a course is repeated, the most recent grade will be used to calculate the GPA, credits earned toward graduation, and determination of class standing. Also, the credit earned for the previous is forfeited and the transcript will indicate NR (no grade – repeated) for the previous course.
Students must have the permission of the Dean of Students Office and their academic advisor for the third attempt at any one course. Courses exempt from the repeat rule are those that may be repeated for credit as indicated in the course description. The Petition for Third and Final Attempt at a Course form can be found here.
The U.S. Department of Education prevents students from receiving financial aid who are retaking a previously passed course more than once. For more information: http://www.mtu.edu/finaid/understanding/requirements/
Students who receive GI Bill benefits cannot be certified for or receive compensation for repeating a course they have previously passed. For more information, please see the School Certifying Official in the Registrar's Office.
