Repeating A Course

In most cases, Academic Counselors can give students permission to register when they are attempting a class for the third time. Students wiching to obtain permission to repeat a mathematics course should go contact to the BCC’s Mathematics Department (Room A-325, Ptikin Education Center)

For the repeat policy, please review the College Catalog.

Repeating of Courses

  1. A student shall have the option to repeat once any course in which a grade of D, C, C+, B or B+ was earned, and only the higher earned grade shall be computed in the grade point average (GPA).The lower grade will be marked with an “R” and will be excluded from the GPA calculation.
  2. A student shall have the option to repeat an “F” or “E” grade earned once. If the student fails to complete the course after two attempts, the student may appeal, in writing, to the appropriate department head, stating any extenuating circumstances which should be considered, for permission to repeat the course again. If the student successfully repeats a course, the higher grade shall be computed in the GPA. The “F” or “E” grade will be marked with an “R” and will be excluded from the GPA calculation. *Note: A student who does not successfully complete a course after two attempts may be unable to complete a degree program. Permission to repeat is not automatic.
  3. It is understood that a student who earns a “D” grade in a given course generally shall be able to pursue the next higher course. Exceptions should be noted for all Health Professions courses and for selected courses as noted in individual course descriptions.
  4. A student may not repeat a course in which a grade of “A,” “CBE” (credit by exam), “TR” (transfer credit), or “INC” (incomplete) was received.
