In the event that a student receives an ‘incomplete’ on a particular course, the grade on that very course shall be calculated once he/she completes it and the student’s GPA will be retroactive until the completion and removal of the ‘incomplete’ mark with due consideration to item (16 F). Student’s GPA should be rounded to the nearest/closest one decimal point. 

C. A graduate student will not be allowed to repeat a course on which he/she obtained a grade of 75% (C+) or above.

D. If a student repeats a particular course, the grade which will be counted or entered in the student’s accumulative average for that course is the higher grade. All grades shall be entered into the student’s academic transcript.

E. A student can repeat any course he/she got a (C,C-,D+,D,D- or F)  in order to raise his/her average, in this case the new grade should be posted on his\her transcript. 3048 reads
