According to DePaul's Student Handbook undergraduate students may have the need to repeat courses. When that occurs, all grades achieved are recorded on the academic record. Upon the initial repeat, only the second grade will be used to determine cumulative credit and to calculate the GPA. If a student repeats that course again, the second and all subsequent grades will be used to calculate the GPA. Credit earned is based on the final attempt. A course must be repeated at DePaul in order for this policy to apply. Students may retake a course in transfer that was originally completed at DePaul. The DePaul grade remains in the GPA, but credit is only accumulated once.
Note: No grade lower than a "C–" is acceptable in a student’s major, minor or allied field. For additional information see graduation requirements.
In order to provide a forum for the fair resolution of academic disputes involving individual students and appropriateness of course grades, procedures have been developed and will be applied to all cases involving DePaul University students. All grade challenges in LAS must be filed by using the Grade Challenge Form available on the Undergraduate Advising Forms site. For additional information regarding grade challenges, see DePaul's Undergraduate Course Catalog.
NOTE: It is departmental policy not to admit students to classes that have already reached their enrollment cap, but instructors do have some discretion on this point to accommodate extenuating circumstances. Instructors also may, at their discretion, give permission for a student to be enrolled after the "add" deadline has passed by following an internal process.
