College of Nursing


Repeating a Course


To delineate the process of repeating a course.


  1. If a student achieves a grade of 60% or higher, a course can be repeated only with permission of the Associate Dean at the appropriate site.
  2. If a course is repeated, only the higher grade will be used in calculating the weighted average.
  3. Undergraduate students in the College of Nursing may attempt a nursing course twice. In exceptional circumstances, permission may be granted by the college for a third and final attempt. Students wishing to attempt a course for the third time must submit a written request to the site specific Associate Dean. Clinical courses being attempted for a third time may require remedial course work.
  4. Students repeating any courses must meet with an Academic Advisor to complete a change of planned progression in the program.
