2023-24 Catalog

Repeating of Courses

A student may repeat a course only twice --  a total of three attempts.  Withdrawal from a course counts as an attempt (effective Fall 2017).

If a course is repeated the final grade received upon repetition of the course is counted in the cumulative average.  Only the most recent grade and the credit associated with that course and grade counts towards degree requirements.  The original grade and associated credit hours received will be excluded from the cumulative average and degree requirements. 

A grade that was originally received in a course may not be changed by repeating the course under the pass-fail option.

Overload approval will not be granted for the purpose of repeating a course.

For deletion of a grade from the cumulative average after repeating a course, a student must repeat the identical course with a final grade at Lehigh.

All instances of repeated courses are displayed on the student's academic transcript regardless of repeated status.  Students are responsible for determining any academic or financial implications for repeating courses.

This policy applies to current students only and is not applicable after a student has graduated.
