Course Repetition


A course may be counted toward graduation requirements only once regardless of how many times it is repeated unless the officially approved course description states that the course can be repeated for credit.

Beginning with courses repeated in fall 2007 and after, when you repeat coursework in which you earned a grade of A, B, C, D, F, FX or WF, the last grade earned, whether higher or lower, will count in your cumulative grade point average. Only a grade of A, B, C, D, F, FX, WF, or P (in courses where all students are graded P/F) can replace the previous grade earned. The earlier grade will continue to appear on your transcript, but the credit hours attempted or earned and the grade earned in the previous attempt will not be used in calculating the cumulative grade point average and cumulative credits. The coursework must be repeated at Frostburg State University.


Graduate students are permitted to repeat a graduate course with the approval of your graduate program coordinator only once and up to a maximum of one course in which a grade of C, F, FX, or WF was earned. If the most recent grade for the repeated course is an F, FX or WF, or if you fail a required course after you have repeated the maximum credit hours allowed, you will be dismissed from the University.

Please note: Based on the dismissal policy, "F" grades will result in dismissal. Course repeat policy only applies after a dismissal appeal is granted.
