Repeating Courses

A. Repeating a course at UWSP that was originally taken at UWSP.

You may repeat a course in which you received a D+, D, or F if you receive electronic authorization from your adviser and the chair of the department in which the course is offered BEFORE you register for the course. If you are a graduate student and need to repeat a graduate course, you must have the written authorization of the dean of the college offering the course.

A second repeat of a course in which you received a D+, D, or F requires written authorization from the dean of the college, in consultation with your advisor and the chair of the department in which the course is offered. You must obtain authorization BEFORE you register for the course.

You may not repeat a course in which you received a grade of C- or better. Your dean, in consultation with the department chair, may grant an exception on appeal only for extenuating circumstances. You must obtain written authorization from your adviser, the chair of the department, and the dean of the college in which the course is offered BEFORE you register for the course.

If you repeat a course which you had initially completed here, we figure only the credit and grade you earn in your last attempt in your cumulative grade point average. However, we do not expunge your original grade from your student record. This applies only when the original attempt and the repeat are taken at UW-Stevens Point.

You can obtain a “Request to Repeat Course Form” from the Office of the Registrar. Be sure to have your request authorized BEFORE registering for the course. Any repeat not authorized before enrolling in the course will result in the repeat being expunged from your record.
 

B. Repeating a course at another institution that was originally taken at UWSP.

Courses in which you received grades of F at UWSP may be repeated at another institution. The repeat will not affect your UWSP transcript. Grades of D or better may NOT be repeated at another institution. Courses repeated at another institution will not replace a grade on your UWSP transcript or be used to recalculate the cumulative grade point average on your transcript.

C. Repeating a course at UWSP that was originally taken at another institution.

Grades earned at another institution may be repeated at UWSP provided you follow the same approval process as if the original grade was earned at UWSP. If approved, the previous attempt earned at another institution will be removed from your record.
