In order to assist students in their progress toward graduation, and to bring the University into compliance with new federal financial aid (Title IV) regulations, the University has a repeat policy.
Beginning Fall 2011, students may repeat any course taken at BYU. However, all grades will be averaged into the grade point average (GPA) and all credit will be counted. BYU does not remove the previous credit or grade from the transcript or the GPA calculations once a class has been repeated. Also, please note that R-suffix classes are not considered repeated courses since students receive a separate grade each time they take these courses. Read more...
Financial Aid Policy
The first and second time a student enrolls in a course, it will be considered eligible hours for federal financial aid. However, multiple repeats of a course will make the credit hours ineligible for federal financial aid calculations. This is regardless of whether or not a student was receiving financial aid the first and second time they enrolled in the course. Keep in mind that the repeat policy is one of many eligibility requirements for receiving federal financial aid.
Repeat Policy and BYU Scholarships
The university repeat policy is only associated with federal financial aid (Title IV) regulations. This change does not impact how BYU Scholarship hours are calculated.
