A student may repeat a course in which a failing grade was earned, but the repetition of the course will not eliminate the previous grade from the record and the student is responsible for tuition and other costs related to the repeated course. A course may be repeated only once unless written authorization is provided by the Program Director, Dean of the School and Dean of the Graduate School. All grades are included in the computation of the quality point average. If a course in which an unsatisfactory grade (as determined by the program advisor) was earned is repeated and the repeat grade is a “C-” or higher, the number of credit hours required for graduation will be increased by the number of credit hours repeated. If a student attempts to retake a passed course, taking the same course to obtain a better grade, financial aid may be affected.

Registrations which involve repeating a course in which a grade of “A” or “B” has already been earned may not earn quality points or credit hours, nor count as credit hours attempted.

UOnline Business Students

Graduate students in the School of Business Administration who fall below the 3.0 GPA may be placed on academic probation. Within one semester after their GPA falling below 3.0, Master's students wishing to repeat a course may petition their program director to do so. If the petition is approved by the graduate program director, the grade obtained in their second attempt will replace the original grade for purposes of calculating their GPA for clearance for graduation only. Authorization to repeat a course is limited to courses in which an unsatisfactory grade was earned (as determined by the graduate program director).

Additionally, a course may be repeated only once and students may not repeat more than two courses. The student's transcript will continue to show all attempts and the GPA computation will include all grades earned for purposes other than computing the GPA for clearance for graduation. If a course in which an unsatisfactory grade of lower than a "B-" was earned is repeated and the repeat grade is "C-" or higher, the number of credits required for graduation will be increased by the number of credits repeated. Registrations which involved repeating course in which a grade of "A" or "B" has already been earned may not earn qualify points or credit hours, nor count as credits attempted. 

UOnline MSEd Sport Administration  

UOnline students must earn a grade of "C" or better in KIN 601 before taking KIN 602 or KIN 603. Should a student earn below a "C" in KIN 601, the student will be automatically withdrawn from their Session 2 course for that term and rescheduled for the immediate next term in KIN 601 to repeat. Students failing to earn the required pre-requisite grade will be responsible for tuition for both attempts.  

UOnline MS Health Informatics 

The minimum passing grade for each course is a B. An overall average of B (3.0) is required for the graduate degree and certificate. 

A student may receive only one (1) grade below a B while they are enrolled in the program. If that grade is below a C, the course must be repeated and a grade of B or better achieved on the retake. The repetition of the course will not eliminate the previous grade from the record and the student is responsible for tuition and other costs related to the repeated course. All grades are included in the computation of the quality point average.

Students receiving a second grade below B will be dismissed from the program
