Course Repeat Policy

Saginaw Valley State University Repeat Policy: A course may be repeated at SVSU to raise a grade. All grades shall remain on the student's academic record (transcript), but in computing the GPA, the better grade will be counted.

A course taken at SVSU may only be repeated at another institution if the course is an equivalent course at SVSU, the initial course grade at SVSU was a D, F, or WF, and a grade of C or better is earned in the repeated course. There will be no transfer of the grade earned from another institution and no recalculation of the SVSU GPA.

No course can be repeated at SVSU more than twice for a grade. Appeals for additional repeats may be made to the Dean of the appropriate college.
