Repeating a Course

Students may repeat any course taken at Kettering University as long as it is still offered. The following conditions apply:

  • There is a limit of one repeat per course (for a total of two attempts). Withdrawals and audits are included in the number of repeat attempts. 
  • Both grades will appear on the student record and transcript.
  • The higher grade received is used in computing the term and cumulative GPA values; the lower grade will be excluded from the term and cumulative GPA values. 
  • The recalculation of GPAs to account for repeated courses occurs at the end of the term after all grades for all students have been processed.
  • Courses repeated at another institution and transferred to Kettering will not replace any attempts at Kettering. 
  • Hours earned in repeated courses may be counted toward graduation only once.
  • Once a degree has been awarded, students cannot repeat a course and have the new grade count towards that degree. 

Additional repeats (beyond one) require the approval of the Academic Success Center, which will be provided only if the student commits to an Academic Improvement Plan. The following conditions apply:   

  • All grades will appear on the student record and transcript.
  • Only one grade (the lowest grade) will be excluded from the term and cumulative GPA values. All other grades will be included in the term and cumulative GPA values. 
  • The recalculation of GPAs to account for repeated courses occurs at the end of the term after all grades for all students have been processed.
  • Courses repeated at another institution and transferred to Kettering will not replace any attempts at Kettering. 
  • Hours earned in repeated courses may be counted toward graduation only once.
  • Once a degree has been awarded, students cannot repeat a course and have the new grade count towards that degree.
