Academic Procedures—Repeating a Course
There are times when students wish to demonstrate on their official record that they understand the material better than their grades indicate. Many complex issues are often involved, and students need to be sure that they have considered all of their options before making their decision to repeat a course. For these reasons, students who want to repeat a course need to secure the dean’s approval by meeting with a professional advisor in the Center for Academic Support. When a course is repeated at Rochester for a grade, both course registrations and both grades appear on the transcript, but only the second (not necessarily the better) grade is used to calculate the grade point average. Credit may be earned for a course only once.
