A graduate student is allowed to repeat a maximum of two courses in which he or she has been assigned a grade below B. A given course may be repeated once. Whenever a course is repeated, no additional hours attempted accrue, and the new grade replaces the previous grade in computing the grade-point average. However, the record of the first attempt will remain a part of the student’s permanent record.
Certain courses at Winthrop University may be taken more than one time for additional academic credit, for example, special topic classes in which the course number remains the same but the course title differs. A list of these courses may be obtained from the appropriate graduate program director.
