Repeating Courses for a Better Grade

Students may repeat courses taken at Kirkwood to try to improve their original grades. The original grades will be changed to X, which carries no credit and has no effect on grade point average. However, if courses are repeated, and students get lower grades, the higher of the two grades will be retained.

In some cases, it may be beneficial for a student to retain both the original and repeat grades. A student who wishes to retain both grades must inform the One Stop office.

For those courses that may be taken for credit more than one time, the second grade will not replace the first.
