Repeat Courses

Undergraduate Students

The College has established the following policy for undergraduate students regarding the repeating of courses:

  1. An undergraduate student will be allowed to repeat a course only if the student has failed the course (F, NCI or NC). A course successfully completed may not be repeated.
  2. A failed course may be repeated two times. Exceptions to this limitation may be considered by the Dean after consulting with the student's advisor and/or program coordinator and/or program chair and, if necessary, after a meeting with the student.
  3. Courses taken at Cambridge College in which a student achieves a failing grade, a WD, NC or NCI will become a part of the permanent academic record. If the course is repeated with a passing grade, the previous grade will be noted on the transcript as repeated (R) and the failing grade, the WD, NC or the NIC will be removed.
  4. A student's grade point average will not change if the student repeats a course after completing a degree or graduating.
  5. Any course taken or repeated may only count toward one degree with the exception of advance standing programs, with the permission of the Dean.

Students on federal financial aid should know that there are regulations that limit financial aid support for repeated classes. A student may need to locate alternate financing for a repeated course.

Graduate Students

The College has established the following policy for graduate students regarding the repeating of courses:

  1. A graduate student will be allowed to repeat a course if the student has failed the course (B- or less).
  2. A course successfully completed may not be repeated unless the academic dean determines that changes in the field or licensure requirements justify a repeat course for the purpose of updating knowledge, skills and/or behaviors. The determination will be made by the academic dean on a case-by-case basis.
  3. A failed course may be repeated two times. Exceptions to this limitation may be considered by the Dean after consulting with the student's advisor and/or program coordinator and/or program chair and, if necessary, after a meeting with the student.
  4. Courses taken at Cambridge College in which a student achieves a failing grade, a WD, NC or NCI will become a part of the permanent academic record. If the course is repeated with a passing grade, the previous grade will be noted on the transcript as repeated (R) and the failing grade, the WD, NC or the NIC will be removed.
  5. Any course taken or repeated may only count toward one degree with the exception of advance standing programs, with the permission of the Dean.

Students on federal financial aid should know that there are regulations that limit financial aid support for repeated classes. A student may need to locate alternate financing for a repeated course.
