Repeating Courses

If your earn a grade of CD or below in a course, the course may be repeated. By repeating a course, you have the opportunity to learn the material better, which will help you in future courses as well as improve your GPA. Below is a list of how it works:

  • You may repeat courses with a grade of CD or lower.
  • The most recent grade is used in your GPA calculation, even if it is lower than the previous grade.
  • Your official transcripts will indicate NR (no grade– repeated) for any earlier attempt(s) at the course.
  • You may repeat a course no more than two times (i.e., take a course three times).
  • Special permission from the Dean of Students Office (1st Floor Administration Building, deanofstudents@mtu.edu, 906-487-2212) and your academic advisor is required to take a course a third and final time.
  • You might not be able to receive financial aid for retaking a course you already passed.  For more information: http://www.mtu.edu/finaid/understanding/requirements/.
  • Students who receive GI Bill benefits cannot be certified for or receive compensation for repeating a course they have previously passed. For more information, please see the School Certifying Official in the Registrar’s Office.

If you have questions regarding which classes to re-take you should contact your academic advisor.
