Repeated Courses

REPEATED COURSES – Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students who receive an F, D-, D, or D+ or WD in a course are permitted to repeat the course once.  The Dean of each College or School has the discretion to approve a second repeat of a course only under limited special and extenuating circumstances.  Under no circumstances may a course ever be repeated more than twice.  If a course is no longer offered, it cannot be repeated. Courses in which a student received a grade of C- or better cannot be repeated.  When a course has been repeated, both the original and the subsequent grade are included on the permanent record, but the credit for the course is counted only once.  The grade received in the last attempt will always be recorded as the official final grade for the course and will be the grade that is counted in the student’s G.P.A. 

These regulations apply whether a course is repeated at Montclair State or repeated at a different institution.

REPEATED COURSES – Graduate Students 

In most circumstances, graduate students may not repeat a course.  In very limited special and extenuating circumstances, a graduate student who has received an F in a course may be approved to repeat the course.  Such approval must be by both the Graduate Program Director and the Dean of the Graduate School.  Under no circumstances may a course ever be repeated more than once.  If a course is no longer offered, it cannot be repeated.  When a course has been repeated, both the original and the subsequent grade are included on the permanent record, but the credit for the course is counted only once.  The grade received in the last attempt will always be recorded as the official final grade for the course and will be the grade that is counted in the student’s G.P.A.
