Repeated Courses

If you repeat a course, the grade received on the last repeat will replace all other grades for that course in the CGPA calculation. Previous grades earned for the repeated course will be marked on the transcript as indicated in the transcript legend. When you repeat a course, you will be charged the current tuition for the course and must assume responsibility for all associated fees.

If you attempt a partial course (module), you may not subsequently attempt the full course. You will be dismissed for failing the same partial course the maximum number of times, as defined by your program’s policies below.

A failing grade is defined as any grade below the grade required for graduation in your program of study.

If you request entry into a program that requires a course you have failed the maximum number of times, you must first successfully complete the failed course at another institution. It is your responsibility to ensure that both the institution and the course(s) taken there meet the University's criteria for transferability.

If you choose to retake a previously passed course, you may only receive financial aid for one additional retake of that course.
