A student wishing to raise a grade for a course may retake the course. Students may not do this, however, as an Independent Study. Registration for such a course must occur at regular periods of registration and be approved by the Registrar. Students are responsible for tuition charges in these cases and financial aid will not apply. The grade for the previous course will remain on the student’s transcript. However, only the higher grade will be computed in the student’s GPA and only one course will count toward credit hours for graduation.
