Repeating Courses

When a student repeats a course at Millikin, the last grade received will be counted in the student's grade point average. A course may be repeated only once to improve a grade. The original grade will appear on the student's transcript, but will not be averaged in the student's overall grade point average.

Students repeating equivalent courses at other institutions will meet the requirement and earn course credit but will NOT alter their original grade OR their grade point average.

Students repeating courses must submit a Repeated Course Form to the Registrar's office in order to assure that the last grade received is counted in the grade point average. Students are advised to repeat failed courses as soon as possible in order to improve their grade point average.
