Repeating a Course

Repeating a Course:

  • A student may repeat a course for the purpose of improving a grade.
    • The course must be repeated with the same grade option as the original enrollment in the course.
  • The highest grade earned in a completed course shall constitute the official grade for the course and will be the only grade included within the cumulative GPA.
    • Credit shall count only once for a KCTCS credential.
  • If a student has been dropped from an occupation or technical program, course enrollment may be dependent upon readmission to the program.
  • After a student has completed the same course twice, a division chair (or designee) in consultation with the instructor may refuse to approve a third registration in the same course, including those offered by correspondence, extension, and distance learning technology.
  • Subject to the approval of the division chair (or designee), a student may receive approval for a substitution of comparable courses.
    • e.g. MT 150 may be taken as a repeat option for MA 109 and vice versa.
  • A student may not register in a given term for more than one course bearing the same number, except where such courses have different identifying titles.
  • Students planning to transfer to the University of Kentucky are advised that the University will accept only three repeat options from the community colleges.
