Boulder Faculty Assembly
The BFA Academic Affairs Committee presents the following resolution for adoption by the Boulder Faculty Assembly:
Moved, that the Boulder Faculty Assembly accept a permanent policy on Course Repetition for the University of Colorado Boulder campus. The policy is stated below:
1. Eligibility and number of credit hours:
Students at the University of Colorado at Boulder campus may retake courses under this Course Repetition Policy.
Undergraduate students who receive a grade of D+ or lower may repeat up to through 10 hours of course credit taken on the Boulder campus or through Boulder Continuing Education any time before graduation.
Graduate students who receive a grade of C+ or lower may repeat one single course (whether undergraduate or graduate level) taken on the Boulder campus or through Boulder Continuing Education. Graduate students must repeat the course within a year and a half (i.e., three consecutive fall/spring semesters) or before graduation whichever is first.
2. Grade point average calculation for University of Colorado at Boulder:
The original earned grade remains permanently on the UCB transcript. The original grade earned, upon completion of the course again for a letter grade in the A_F scale or as P/F, will be removed from calculating the grade point average only for the UCB campus.
The repeated grade under this Course Repetition policy will be the grade used for calculation by UCB in credit hours and grade point average even if the repeated grade is lower than the original grade.
3. Restrictions on Course Repetition:
Undergraduate students who have earned D+ or lower and graduate students who have earned C+ or lower inthe original course through academic dishonesty may not use this Course Repetition policy to recalculate the UCB grade point average.
This policy should be reviewed in three years.
