Repeating Courses

A student may repeat a course one time after earning a grade of D, F, FAW, U or W. Before a third attempt, a student must obtain division approval before enrolling in the course. If the subsequent course was taken at LCCC, the grade received for the repeated course will thereafter be substituted for the former grade in calculating the student’s cumulative GPA. If the original grade was an F and a subsequent equivalent course was taken at another institution, the original grade will be treated as a repeated course which will not be included in GPA calculation. However, all original grades will be included when computing cumulative grade point average for graduation with honors. Courses in which a grade of C or better was earned may be repeated for audit only. No credit will be awarded. A course repeated will be considered as any other course in determining the credit hour load to be carried by the student in a semester.

Students using veterans’ benefits may repeat courses under certain circumstances. Refer to Veterans’ Standards of Progress or contact the veterans’ certifying team in the Enrollment, Financial and Career Services division for further information.
