An undergraduate student may repeat a course an unlimited number of times except in cases where a department has imposed repetition limits. The repetition of a course does not remove the previous grades from the student's official academic record (official transcripts). A "W" will no replace a previous grade. The University is not obligated to offer courses so that a student can repeat them.
The last grade in a course will be used in computing the student's grade-point average (GPA). In order to get the adjusted GPA, you must repeat the course at Ball State University. You cannot transfer in a new grade from another college or university because only passing credits will transfer to Ball State University. The credit hours will count only once toward meeting minimum credit requirements for graduation.
Students are strongly encouraged to meet regularly with an advisor.
