Repetition of Courses


A student may repeat a course which was previously taken and received a final grade of C or lower. Students are permitted to repeat a course in which a grade of B or higher was earned only with the approval of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Courses may be repeated with only the first attempt being replaced by the second attempt. Any successive attempts will count in the cumulative grade point average with the last attempt standing as the grade in the course and only the last attempt for that course fulfilling the graduation requirement. Courses used to complete the graduation requirement must have a passing grade. This means that you can have credit for a course only one time in the calculated earned hours which apply toward the degree.

Transfer students applying for admission into the University will have their quality point averages recomputed with regard to repeats; their admission and standing will be subject to the revised average.

Although a course may be taken at another school after having received a grade for the equivalent course at this university, it may improve the cumulative QPA but not the Tennessee Tech average. This means that a course, once taken at this university, may not be repeated at another school in order to improve the grade average on courses taken originally at Tennessee Tech.

All grades received for a course will remain on a student’s transcript. A notation is added to indicate that the course has been repeated. The information showing the grade received when the course was repeated is given in the report for the semester during which the course was repeated.
