Who Received This Email?
We sent this email at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2022, to students who were enrolled in a Fall 2022 class that was evaluated as eligible for grade replacement.

Dear [first],

According to our records, you've enrolled to retake the same class or a direct equivalent of [Class] in Fall 2022. We've evaluated that this class is eligible for grade replacement.

Grade replacement is applied automatically at the end of each term for eligible courses and students. We'll send you another email once grade replacement has been applied to your record (after grades have posted at the end of the semester).

Remember, the grade you earned in the most recent prior attempt will still appear on your transcript, but it will be replaced in your cumulative GPA and credit totals by the grade from your latest attempt as long as that grade is the same or better. 

Repeating a Course Without Grade Replacement

If the course becomes ineligible for grade replacement, grade replacement won't be applied and the grades from both attempts will be included in your cumulative and major GPAs, credit totals and academic standing. For example, if a lower grade is earned in the latest attempt or if you drop the class. Learn more about the eligibility requirements for grade replacement.

You may also repeat a course without grade replacement by submitting an opt-out request from your Colorado email to by the last day of the semester. Opting out of grade replacement is irreversible. Please meet with your advisor to discuss how opting out of grade replacement will impact your GPA and academic standing. 

If you have any questions, please review our grade replacement webpage or contact us.
