3.9 Course Repeat Policy

A student enrolled at East Central College may repeat a course one time, if either the student received a grade of D, F, W or WX or the course content and/or credit hour value changed significantly since the original enrollment. If a student needs to repeat a course an additional time and conditions warrant such exception, the student must receive written permission from the chief academic officer (CAO) or the chief student affairs officer (CSAO). All attempts at the course will be recorded on the official college transcript and the highest grade will be factored into the student’s GPA. Financial aid rules may prohibit students from receiving funding for repeating a course under any circumstances.

Procedures:

3.9.1 Once a course has been repeated, the student grade point average will be computed based on the highest grade awarded in the course. Any course repeat is noted on the official college transcript. Transfer institutions may or may not honor a repeat course grade.

3.9.2 Students seeking written permission to repeat a course as detailed in the policy can find more information from the registrar’s office, the CAO or CSAO, or from an academic advisor.
