For a course initially taken prior to Fall 1994 and subsequently repeated, the transcript will reflect both courses and grades; both grades will be calculated in the grade point average.
For a course initially taken in the Fall of 1994 or thereafter and subsequently repeated, the transcript will reflect both courses and grades; only the higher grade will be calculated in the grade point average.
In both cases, credit will be granted only once. In courses that are allowed to be repeated (e.g., COMP 100 to a maximum of 6 semester hours), the repeat rule will be applied after the maximum credits are achieved. Exceptions to this (e.g., student fails COMP 100 the first time and wishes to improve GPA via the repeat rule) may be directed to the Committee on Student Progress and Status via the College Registrar (128 Netzer).
Students may not repeat a course using the Pass/Fail grading option, a course challenge, or with an individual course enrollment registration. Students may not use transfer courses to replace a grade at SUNY Oneonta.
Beginning Fall 2015, students will be permitted a maximum of one repeat per course. Only the higher grade will count in the student’s GPA. Credit will be earned once. Students who attempt to repeat a course a second time will be dropped from the course by the Registrar and/or denied Prior Approval.
Appeals: Students who wish to appeal the repeat rule may do so in consultation with the student’s faculty advisor. Students will use the Appeal to the Undergraduate Course Repeat Policy Form to outline their request. The student’s faculty advisor and the chairperson of the student’s major each review the form and make recommendations. The Student Progress and Status Committee makes the final decision.
Repeating courses may have an impact on financial aid. Students considering repeating courses should discuss it with their financial aid counselor.
