Repeating of Courses Policy
Students who receive a grade of "C" or better in a course may not repeat that course for credit towards completion of the requirements for the degree they are pursuing unless special permission is granted by the Department Chairperson, Dean and Provost & Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
Students who receive a grade of "D" or "F" in a course taken at Elizabeth City State University may repeat the course if any of the following apply:
- The course is specifically required by the student's academic major and/or the Honors Program and a grade of "C" is also required or is a prerequisite for another course in the major.
- Repeated registration in a course may be allowed if the course description carries the statement, "may be repeated" or "repeated to a maximum of credits."
Should six or more years have elapsed since a student's initial enrollment in any course, and current knowledge of the course content be needed, the Department may require the student to repeat the course.
A student may repeat a given course only twice. The student may repeat a maximum of 15 semester hours during his matriculation toward a degree.
All grades received will be recorded on the student's permanent record. But only the higher grade will be used in computing the grade point average. To repeat a course, a student must obtain a Repeat of Course Form from the Registrar's Office prior to registering for the course indicating permission has been granted by the student's faculty advisor, Departmental Chairperson and the Dean of the appropriate school.
A course repeated may be taken at ECSU or, with prior approval, at another four-year institution.
Appeals or request for waiver of any of the terms associated with this policy may be made to the university's Academic Standards and Credits Committee.
