Passed Courses

A passed course is one in which the student has achieved a grade of D or better. A student who has received a passing grade for a course may not repeat that course or take an equivalent or excluded course for degree credit.

However, students are allowed to retake a passed course once for academic degree or certificate credit only if the student has failed to achieve sufficient standing to proceed in a core or prerequisite course in a degree or certificate program, and if no alternative remedies are provided. When a student is allowed to repeat a passed course for academic degree or certificate credit, the second grade will be the grade of record and the only grade calculated in the student's grade point average (major, cumulative, sessional, and overall). A course can be credited only once towards satisfaction of academic degree or certificate credit requirements. The record of both the first and second time the course was taken will appear on the student's transcript, with the first course designated as "No Credit Retained".
