All FRCC courses may be repeated at FRCC. Courses transferred from other institutions do not apply to this policy. Each registration for the course and each grade received will be listed on the transcript. On the transcript a notation will follow the course indicating that the course was repeated and designating whether the course will be included in the GPA. The highest grade will be used in the GPA calculation. All courses, regardless of the grade earned, are eligible for repeat as long as all other enrollment requirements have been met. All credit hours earned for initial and repeated courses will be deducted from the student’s remaining COF stipend eligible hours. Repeating a course may impact the student's financial aid eligibility.
Repeated courses may be applied only one time to a certificate or degree, except for variable credit courses that may have up to 6 credits of the same course applied.
If both the initial and the repeated course were taken in fall 2006 or after, the system automatically removes the lower grade from the GPA. If either the initial or the repeated course (or both) were taken prior to fall 2006, then the student must complete a Repeated Course Request form and submit it to the Admissions and Records Office.
For Developmental Courses Only:
The grading system for developmental courses changed beginning fall 2006, and developmental grades are no longer included in the cumulative GPA calculation. However, if either the initial course or the repeated course (or both) were taken prior to fall 2006, then the student must complete a repeat course petition form for the developmental coursework and submit it to the Admissions and Records Office.
