A student who receives a grade of a "C-" or lower in a course must repeat the course in order to graduate from the graduate program. Students may repeat a course only one time. Students may also choose to repeat a course one time to improve their cumulative GPA. The newly earned grade will replace the original grade in the calculation of a student’s cumulative grade-point average; however, the former grade is retained as originally recorded in the student’s transcript. Students cannot repeat a course that has been removed from the curriculum unless another course has been designated as an approved alternative for the deleted course.
When a student receives a failing grade (X, F or WF) in a 799 course with unique content and seeks to repeat the course, the Dean of the School in which the course was offered may authorize a comparable course to be taken as a substitute. The grade in the designated substitute course will replace the failing grade in calculating the cumulative grade-point average.
A student repeating a course will be charged full tuition for the course.
Students may apply for waiver of a graduate level course if they have undergraduate courses that correspond to the following requirements:
Students must present a transcript and syllabus for each class that they are providing as part of their request for a waiver. This information must be submitted to the Dean of the College of Business for review and approval.
If the waiver of a course is approved, then the student must take another graduate level course in place of the course for which they obtained the waiver.
