Repeating a course can have negative consequences. For example, if a passing grade of C-, D+ or D was received in the first enrollment, but a failing grade is received when the course is repeated, no credit would be earned for either attempt. Repeating a previously passed course may also have an effect on financial aid eligibility. Students considering repeating previously passed courses should also consult Financial Aid staff.
Grade substitution only available for UMass Amherst courses. If approved, only the third grade will count in your GPA (this is true regardless of whether the third grade is higher or lower than the original). Credit will be earned once.
