Course Repeat Policy

Students may repeat a course if they received a grade of “D+” or lower. Credit for the grade from the most recent course attempt will be used in calculating the grade point average and earned unit count. Credit for the previous course attempt will be set to zero; the previous grade will not be used in determining the grade point average. The grade will appear on the transcript with an “R” prefix.

The grading policy on repeated courses:

  1. applies only to courses taken at Beloit College;
  2. applies to “topics” courses only if the same topic is repeated. A “topics” course is one that may be repeated for credit if the topic is different;
  3. does not apply to music lessons and music ensembles;
  4. does not apply to dance courses that may be taken twice for credit.

Faculty of the repeated course will be able to determine if/when a student may repeat the course. Enrollment in a repeated course is subject to availability of and space in the course, which are not guaranteed.

Note: This policy applies to courses taken in Fall 2023 and later. See 2021-23 catalog for the previous policy.
