Repeating a Course

Students may repeat a course in which they have received a "D" or "F" grade, but may not receive credit for the course more than once. Only the higher of the two grades will be used in computing the grade point average. If students repeat a course in which they have received an "A", "B", or "C" grade, they will not receive credit for the repeated course, and the grade points will not be counted in the students’ record. The only exception is for courses noted in the "Course Descriptions" section of the catalog as those that may be repeated for full credit. In all cases, both grades will remain on the students’ official college transcript. This policy pertains only to courses taken and repeated at Triton College. In order to benefit from this provision, the student is responsible for submitting a Petition for Repeated Course upon successful completion of repeated course.
