Course Retake Policy

Students may retake any course, if offered, in which they received a failing grade (F), which they dropped (X or XF), or from which they withdrew (W, WP, or WF).  Students may also retake a course that they have used course exclusion on.

The Course Retake option may not be used for First-Year Seminar courses.

Under special circumstances, with the approval of the appropriate Dean, students may retake one course, if offered, in which they have earned a passing grade and that they have not used course exclusion on (an appropriate example would be the retaking of a prerequisite course in one’s major where sufficient mastery was not obtained to allow a student to move successfully to the next course). Only one retake of a course will be permitted. The course must be taken at Stetson University. The credit(s)/unit(s) for the repeated course will count in the student’s semester academic load. Upon completion of the repeated course, both grades earned will be listed on the transcript regardless of the repeated course grade being the same, higher, or lower than the first attempt. All credit(s)/unit(s) attempted and all grades earned will count in the student’s cumulative GPA calculation and in the GPA calculation for graduation honors. Only the credit earned from one course will count toward required graduation credit(s)/unit(s). This may result in having to take additional courses to meet graduation requirements.
