When a student earns a low grade, like a “D” or “F,” they may repeat the identical course in an effort to earn a higher grade. Although the lower grade remains on the transcript, only the higher of the two grades will be calculated in the cumulative grade point average (CGPA). A student may choose to repeat a course to earn a better grade, to enhance their knowledge of course content, or to meet a program’s time limit for acceptable courses. Previous grade remains on transcript only highest counts in CGPA. If a student receives an “M” grade, the student must repeat the course successfully or score sufficiently on appropriate retest before advancing to next level course.
