Repeat Courses

A student may repeat a course. Only the highest grade and credit hours are used in computing the student’s cumulative grade-point average. Lower grades removed from the computation by a student repeating a course appear on the permanent record marked by a designated symbol. Students cannot remove unsatisfactory grades received at Drake by repeating those courses at other institutions and transferring the credit to Drake.

Students should be aware that most law schools and many graduate schools recompute a student’s grade-point average in such a way as to count all grades received and not just the highest grade earned for a course.
