Repeating a Course

Effective fall 2019, Nursing, Sonography, and Health Professions Completion students must repeat any required course in which a grade below “C” in a general education course or a grade below a “C+” in the major is received. For degrees in Biomedical Sciences and Healthcare Studies, all entering students must repeat any required course in which a grade below a “C” is received, both for general education and major courses. Students who entered prior to fall 2019 must repeat any required course in which a grade below “C+” in a general education course or a course in a major.

The record of both the original and the repeated course will be retained on the student's transcript. For purposes of determining the student's cumulative grade point average, only the grade points and credits earned in the last retaking of the course will be used. Enrollment in a repeated course will be on a space available basis.

Course in a Major

Students may only repeat a course in the major one time. Students may repeat no more than two courses in the major in which a grade of less than “C+” is earned throughout the curriculum. A student cannot repeat a course in a major for which a final grade of “C+” or better has been earned.

General Education Course

Effective fall 2014, students may only repeat the same general education course one time. Students who choose to repeat a general education course that they have already completed successfully at Bryan College of Health Sciences and/or that has transferred successfully from an accredited institution must be informed that they will not be able to include such a course toward eligibility for federal financial aid.

Students may audit a general education course that they have already completed successfully at Bryan College of Health Sciences and/or that has transferred successfully from an accredited institution. However, students must be informed that an audited course will not be included toward eligibility for federal financial aid.
