Retaking a Course

Except for Ph.D. students, a Caspersen student may retake a course in which he or she has earned a grade of F, except for M.A.T. students who are required to repeat courses in which they earn a grade lower than B-. For courses retaken after a first grade of F, both the original F and the grade earned when the course is retaken are calculated in the GPA. Credits are awarded only for the second course enrollment, assuming the student earns a passing grade.

Students who have not met the required average of their program at the conclusion of the stipulated number of courses required for a given degree may not seek to meet the required average by taking additional courses without specific permission from the Graduate Academic Standing Committee, in consultation with the Convener or Director.
