Repeating Courses

When a course is retaken, the grade earned will replace the initial grade, even if that grade is lower than the initial grade. If a student repeats a required course in years 1-5, the grade received in that course must be a letter grade of C or better (not C-) or the student is subject to academic dismissal.

For students in year 6, experiential program policies for remediation of grades below C- will apply. These policies are outlined in the Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience Manual.

For students entering first year during or after fall 2010:

Students in years 1 and 2 must repeat, in the subsequent term or summer session, any course in which they receive a grade lower than C-. Students in years 3-5 may have only two grades lower than C- in required courses and, therefore, may choose or be required to repeat a course.
