Sayre Policies

Repeated Course Policy

The policy applies to all repeated courses and all students who are pursuing a degree.

Students may repeat courses in which original grades were "D" or "F" and have only the second grades count in the retention and graduation grade point average. The first four courses (18 hour maximum) repeated are the only hours that can be considered under the Repeated Course Policy.

Students must apply at the Registrar's Office in order to have hours considered under the Repeated Course Policy.

If a course is repeated more than once, all grades earned with the exception of the first grade, will be counted in the retention and graduation and cumulative grade point average.

Students may repeat courses above the first four courses (18 hour maximum); however, both the original grade and repeat grade will be included in all grade point averages.

In cases where students believe courses to be identical, although the course number or title may differ, it will be necessary to obtain validation from the department offering the course.

Students should not assume that the retention and graduation grade point will be used for admission to or retention in programs such as Pharmacy, Nursing, and Teacher Education. Students should contact the appropriate department chair or advisor to obtain specific information about admission requirements.
