Kirkwood Community College Credit Catalog 2017-2018

Repeating Courses for a Better Grade

Typically courses are taken for credit only once. However, students may repeat a course to try to improve their original passing grade. No course may be repeated more than twice without the approval of the vice president for Academic Affairs. When a course is repeated, the lower grade will be changed to an X, which carries no credit and has no effect on the grade point average. Only the best grade will be used in the GPA calculation. Because of federal financial aid regulations, a third attempt will not contribute to a student’s half-time/full-time status for financial aid eligibility.
