 Repeating Courses

Undergraduate students are permitted to repeat any course regardless of the grade received.

Repeated Course Academic Regulations:

  • Only the grade received on the last attempt is computed in the overall GPA.
  • This last attempt grade practice applies to MSU and is not necessarily the way other institutions might compute the cumulative GPA upon transfer.
  • MSU courses for which a failing grade has been received must be repeated in residence unless prior approval has been received from the MSU department head.
  • A failing grade may not be removed by correspondence study or proficiency testing unless approved in advance by the department head and dean of the college in which the course was offered.
  • Students wishing to repeat courses must file a Repeat of Course Option with the Registrar's Office at the time of enrollment in the course to be repeated.
