Repeating a Course

Effective with the Summer 2013 term, students may repeat a course to improve a grade; however, they 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 (GPA).

The only exception to using the higher grade in GPA computation is for courses that may be repeated for full credit as designated in the "Course Descriptions" section of the college catalog. In such cases, students may submit the Petition for Repeated Course to the Records Office to request that all allowable grades be used in the recalculation of the GPA.

In all cases, both grades will remain on the student's official college transcript. This policy pertains only to courses taken and repeated at Triton College.

All grade point averages and associated honors, awards, and activities established prior to the Summer 2013 term are correct as stated.
