A student will be allowed to repeat a maximum of four different courses while at Molloy. With the exception of independent studies, topics, internships and courses in applied music, no course for which a student has already received a satisfactory grade may be repeated for additional credit. Credit is never granted for the same course twice. If a grade is unacceptable after the second repeat, this problem will be referred to the Vice President for Academic Affairs for individual action. Students may not have an unacceptable grade forgiven by replacing it with the grade from another course used as a substitute for a requirement. When a student repeats a course, the forgiven grade remains on the academic record, but it is not calculated in the overall cumulative GPA. Students are not allowed to repeat courses to improve their GPA by attending another institution to repeat a course. (For information regarding the nursing department’s policies on repeats, see the nursing program's policies and requirements section.)
A course in which a student receives a grade below "B" in education or a grade below a "B-" in nursing or in business may be repeated once. The option to repeat a course may not be used more than two times.
