How to repeat a class you've already taken

Undergraduate students

Undergraduate students may attempt to improve their GPA by repeating a course in which they have earned a grade of C-, D+, D, D-, F, WU or IC. Students cannot repeat a course in which a grade of "C" or higher has been assigned. Students wishing to repeat a course they have successfully passed must submit the Undergraduate Course Repeat Petition.

Undergraduate students may only repeat a course one time. Students wishing to repeat a course more than once must submit the Undergraduate Course Repeat Petition.

Undergraduate students are limited to repeating 28 semester units during their career at CSUMB. 16 of these units may be assigned grade forgiveness, while the remaining 12 units will be averaged into the GPA. Students wishing to exceed their repeat limit must submit the Petition for Exception to University Policy.

Graduate and credential-seeking students

Graduate and credential-seeking students may only repeat for GPA adjustment a course in which a grade of B- or lower was assigned. When a course is repeated all grades count toward the GPA and grade forgiveness will not be granted.

See the Academic Standing Policy for more details about repeating courses.
