Repeating a Course

Students may repeat classes under the following guidelines.

Only courses taken at UIndy are eligible for the repeat policy. Courses taken at another institution may not be used to replace a grade on a student’s academic record in accordance to Rule #7 of the Transfer Policies stated on page 62.

  1. When repeating a course, only the most recent grade is computed into the grade point average. The grade and the hours for the prior class are no longer calculated into the person’s academic record, and the prior class cannot be used to fulfill any requirements, even in those cases in which the grade in the first class is higher than the second.
  2. A course must be repeated prior to taking a sequential course in order for the first grade to be taken out of the grade point average calculation.
  3. Students can earn credit only once for a course; they cannot earn duplicate credit for repeated courses. (Exceptions to this policy are noted in course descriptions, such as those for special topics courses.)
  4. All courses taken and all grades earned are recorded on the student’s permanent record with appropriate notations.
  5. Transfer courses are indicated on the transcript with a “T” grade and credit hours earned. A transfer course grade will not replace a grade for coursework completed at UIndy.
  6. A student’s GPA is final at the time their degree is posted. Coursework which applied towards the student’s degree may be repeated, however, the grade included in the GPA calculation may not be excluded.

It is the student’s responsibility to note on the registration form that a course is being repeated. Failure to do so may result in subsequent problems with meeting degree requirements.
