Walsh

Course Repeat Policy

The Course Repeat Policy will apply to all Walsh programs.

The grade of any eligible course repeated beginning fall 2012 may be replaced one time, regardless of when the course was taken previously or how many attempts of the course were made prior to fall 2012. This policy applies only to courses that are repeated fall 2012 or later.

Any eligible course, regardless of grade, may be repeated once at Walsh for a grade replacement.

There is no appeal process to this limit. Additional repeats will be allowed without grade replacement. If, after the one-time replacement, the course has not been passed, all subsequent grades will be factored into all GPA calculations, along with the better of the original and replaced grades.

Courses that are not eligible for grade replacement:

  • Courses that have been graduated in any program may not be replaced in that program
  • Courses for which transfer credit has been awarded
  • Courses whose grades have been affected by findings of academic misconduct
  • Courses that are dual listed

Students who repeat courses at other institutions will not receive transfer credit if Walsh credit has been earned, nor will they improve their Walsh grade point average. A grade of Audit (“AU”) will automatically be issued to a student who repeats a course in which they have received course equivalency transfer credit, an exclusion, waiver or advanced standing.

All grades will remain visible on the transcript. All academic standings originally calculated will remain visible on the transcript.

In any one program, credit can only be earned once for any course.

Withdrawn classes will not replace grades and will not be included in the one-time grade replacement limit. Students will still be allowed two withdrawals in addition to one replacement attempt per eligible course. In the case of a withdrawal, a grade of “W” will appear on the transcript.

Federal and/or state regulations may supersede portions of this policy. For example, students with financial aid or GI Bill® benefits are required to follow federal regulations regarding repeating courses. Please see the financial aid and veterans’ sections of the Student Handbook for details.

Undergraduate and Graduate Programs

After grade replacement, once a course has been completed at Walsh with a grade of “C” (2.000) or better, all subsequent attempts will receive a grade of Audit (“AU”) and no credit.

Doctoral Programs

After grade replacement, once a course has been completed at Walsh with a grade of “B” (3.000) or better, all subsequent attempts will receive a grade of Audit (“AU”) and no credit.
