Retaking Courses to Improve GPA

Students seeking to improve their GPA may retake a course with Program Director approval. Approval must be granted prior to the start of the repeated course. Documentation of the approved request must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office prior to the end of the term. If a course is retaken, both grades will be listed on the transcript and the higher of the two grades will be used in the determination of the student’s GPA. A student who has earned credit for a course may repeat it once, but will not receive additional credit. Master’s Degree and PhD in Clinical Research students will be charged at the per-credit rate for all retake courses.

Students cannot receive financial aid to cover the tuition cost for retaking a course.
