A student may repeat any of the courses that he or she has taken during undergraduate enrollment at JMU except courses originally taken and passed on a credit/no credit basis. All grades will be included when calculating the student's grade point average. There are, however, certain exceptions to this rule.#N#Students may elect to repeat up to two courses during their enrollment at JMU on a "repeat forgiveness" basis. As a result of the "repeat forgiveness" option, the university will exclude the previous grade and credit hours earned for the repeated course when it calculates the student's cumulative GPA and earned credit hours total, regardless of whether the previous grade was higher or lower than the repeat attempt. Both grades will appear on the transcript. The student must either declare the "repeat forgiveness" option at registration or “edit” the course repeat option via MyMadison prior to the end of the course adjustment period. A student may not exercise the repeat/forgiveness option for courses in which that student was assigned a grade as a result of an Honor Code violation. Courses taught on a topic basis are repeatable; however, these courses may only be designated with a repeat credit or repeat/forgiveness credit option if both course attempts have the same topic (i.e. a second attempt of the course GHUM 200 “Western Classics” may only be assigned as a repeat credit or repeat/forgiveness credit if the original attempt of GHUM 200 was taken with the topic “Western Classics”).#N#All grades will appear on the student's transcript, but a course that has been repeated will only be counted once toward satisfying graduation requirements. Students selecting the "repeat forgiveness" option should be aware that professional schools, graduate programs, and future employers may apply their own criteria that may not recognize the "repeat forgiveness" option in evaluating credentials for prospective students or employees.#N#Courses taken at other universities do not qualify to be taken as repeat/forgiveness. Courses taken in a different JMU career (i.e. Continuing Education) and subsequently transferred to an undergraduate JMU career are not repeatable. Students may request approval to retake these courses utilizing the audit grading basis only.
