A maximum of six course repeats is permitted. The grades for a repeated course remain on the transcript and are part of the student’s permanent record. Except for a W, the most recent grade (regardless of whether it is higher or lower) will be the grade used for QPA calculation. Each repeat of the same course counts as one of the six permitted repeats and an individual course may not be attempted more than 3 times (defined as three non-W grades on the transcript). Withdrawals (courses for which the grade is W) do not count toward either the overall 6-repeat maximum or the individual course 3-repeat maximum. A course taken three times (defined as three non-W grades on the transcript) at Bloomsburg University may not be transferred from another institution of higher education.
