Repeated Courses

In general, students may receive credit one time for completion of a course unless the course description states otherwise. Courses used to meet requirements for a previously conferred degree or certificate may not be repeated. Students may repeat a course to improve their GPA under certain conditions:

  • Grades for transferred in credit do not override grades earned from NCMC.
  • Students may repeat a course in which a grade of “C” or lower was earned, provided they have not completed a higher level course with a grade of “A” or “B” that required the first course as pre-requisite.
  • When a course is repeated, only the last grade is used in computing the grade point average.
  • Courses in which grades of “A” or “B” were received may be repeated by declaring an audit at the time of enrollment. In the case of an audit, the student is taking the course for informational purposes only and does not receive credit or a grade for the course. The first grade of “A” or “B” remains in the grade point calculation.
