A student may repeat a course taken at the University provided that the original grade was lower than “B” (3.00). Course grades for both the original and the repeated attempts will appear on the permanent record. The grade of the repeated course replaces the original grade in the computation of the GPA, and the hours attempted will be counted only once. Permanent records will indicate repeated courses.
A course taken at the University of St. Thomas may not ordinarily be repeated outside the University. A student may petition to repeat a course failed at the University of St. Thomas at another college or university if compelling reasons prevent repeating the course at the University. Permission to repeat a course elsewhere must be obtained from the Academic Committee. If permission is granted, credit hours and grade will transfer to the University, but the original grade of “F” and hours attempted will remain in the computation of the student’s GPA. To replace the original grade of “F” and hours attempted in the computation of the GPA, a course must be repeated at the University of St. Thomas.
A student who withdraws from the University of St. Thomas for one or more semesters, repeats courses at another school, and then returns to the University will not be allowed to use these courses to replace grades previously earned at the University.
