Repeating a Course

A student may repeat a course in which he or she received a grade of D+, D, D-, F, WF, or NQ. When a course is repeated, it counts only once for credit to the degree. Only the highest grade is included in the calculation of the cumulative grade point average. Each grade appears on the academic transcript. The course must be repeated at Albright for this policy to apply.

In general, a student may not repeat a course in which he or she received a grade of C- or higher. However, a student may repeat such a course with the permission of the adviser and approval of the academic dean. In such case, both the original grade and the second grade are included in the cumulative grade point average.
