Repeating Courses

When a student repeats a course at Millikin to replace their prior grade, the second grade received will determine the student’s grade and the credit earned for the course. All course grades will appear on the transcript. A course may be successfully repeated beyond the second attempt to satisfy degree requirements, but credits will not be earned nor will the grade affect the student’s grade point average. The failure of a course beyond the second attempt will negatively affect a student’s grade point average.

A course repeated at an institution other than Millikin does not eliminate the previous grade from being computed in the student’s grade point average. The repeated course will be recorded for zero earned credits, but can be used to satisfy degree requirements. Transfer courses do not affect the overall grade point average.

Repeating of a course(s) will affect academic progress. All repeated courses must be reported to the Office of the Registrar prior to the end of the registration period. Failure to do so may jeopardize a student’s ability to make acceptable progress towards their degree.
