Repeating Courses

Policy Statement

In order to retake a course, you simply schedule the same course again in a new term. There are no special forms to fill out or approvals to obtain. Each time and term you take the course, the course name and grade you earn for the course will appear on your transcript. For example, if you take a course three times, the name of the course will appear three times and you will receive a grade each of the three times. Drexel University computes a single, unified grade point average for all undergraduate courses taken at the university. All grades from original and repeated course enrollments are calculated into both the term grade point average and the cumulative grade point average with no exclusions or averages. The credits earned from the first time a course is completed with a passing grade will be included in your earned and passed hours.
