Undergraduate students may have the need to repeat courses. When that occurs, all grades achieved are recorded on the academic record. The first time the course is repeated, only the new 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. Note: A C– grade is acceptable in a student’s major providing the overall GPA in the major is 2.0.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.
