Policy on Repeating Courses

When a student repeats a course, it is recorded on the transcript each time. All grades are used in calculating the cumulative grade point average (GPA). An adjusted GPA, which uses only the last grade earned if a class has been repeated, will be used where necessary for graduation. However, the adjusted GPA will not be printed on the transcript. The cumulative GPA is used to determine academic status (probation/suspension) and for the purpose of awarding honors and campus awards (effective the 2000 fall semester). Students should be aware that other fouryear colleges and universities may not honor Grambling State University’s repeat policy.
