Repetition of Courses
Effective Spring 2015
If a course was taken in residence and a grade of A+ through C, P, CR, or S was earned, then repetition of this course results in no additional credit or honor points. The course and grade appear on the transcript with the notation "Not for Credit." A student repeating a course in which C- through D- was previously earned will receive honor points but no additional credit toward a degree. The course appears on the transcript with the notation "Repetition." Repetition of a course in which an E, F, or U grade was originally earned produces both credits toward a degree and honor points for courses elected on the graded pattern; there is no special transcript notation. In all such cases, the first election and grade earned remain on the transcript. The grades earned by repetition of courses are not averaged and posted as a single entry; but are posted as separate elections.
Previous Repetition of Courses Policy
Out of Sequence Courses
Students should assume that once they take an in-residence course in a sequence (chemistry, mathematics, language, and others), they cannot receive credit for taking a prior course in the sequence. For example, a student who took SPANISH 231 after taking and passing SPANISH 232 on the Ann Arbor campus would not receive credit for the SPANISH 231 course.
Students who transfer in credit for a course in a sequence should assume they will lose credit for that course if they take a prior course in the sequence in residence at Ann Arbor. For example, a student taking MATH 115 in Ann Arbor after transferring credit for MATH 116 from another institution would lose the credit for the MATH 116 course.
Students should contact a LSA academic advisor if they have questions about whether or not a course is part of a sequence.
