It is the policy of the Board of Trustees to allow students to repeat a course under certain conditions.
A course in which a student enrolls more than once is considered a repeated course. Approval will be given under the following conditions:
- If the student previously completed the course with less than a grade of C (or equivalent) and the course is necessary to satisfy requirements for a degree or certificate, the student may enroll and be claimed in the course one additional time; or
- If a course has been approved by the Illinois Community College Board to be repeated, the student may repeat the course and be claimed as often as approved by the Illinois Community College Board.
In instances where a student repeats a given course, both courses will be recorded on the student’s transcript. The higher of the two grades will be recorded on the transcript and used in computing the cumulative grade point average. The lower of the two grades will not be computed in the grade point average nor will it be applicable to a degree or certificate.
