Request for Exception to UA Course Repeat Policy
An undergraduate or graduate student may attempt the same course at the University no more than twice, whether the student completes the course with a passing or failing grade (i.e., C, D, E, S, P, F, I) or whether the student audits, withdraws or is administratively dropped from the course (i.e., O, W, E, WO, XO). Thus, a student who drops a course any time after the first withdrawal deadline (e.g., beginning of the fifth week of the semester) has had one attempt with that course. Repeating a course with the Grade Replacement Opportunity (GRO) counts as an additional attempt.
Original grades of A or B may not be repeated, except as specifically provided by departments on a course-by-course basis. When a completed course with a passing or failing grade is repeated without use of the GRO, the cumulative grade-point-average (GPA) will reflect the grades earned in the first and second attempts. Credit will be applied only once to the degree program, unless the course is designated repeatable for credit by the department.
UAccess and Course Repeats
Historical Exceptions Involving Previously Completed Work
Exceptions for Future Registration
- UAccess WILL allow enrollment in a course for which an original grade of A or B was earned. However, after the grade is posted at the end of the term, and when the course repeat checking process runs, the course will not count, per policy. Please continue to submit your "Request for Exception to Course Repeat Policy for Future Registration" now, so that we can code the first iteration of the course in order to allow the upcoming one to count.
- Exception requests will be processed within 24-48 hours.
- The submitter and the student will be notified by email when the request is processed.
- Departments may choose to wait until after Priority Registration to submit course repeat exception requests so that they may hold seats for students not repeating courses.
- UAccess will permit enrollment in courses that are set up to allow multiple enrollment.
