Repeat Grades

You may repeat a course for which credit was earned with a grade of A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, or S one time only.

The official grade earned will be the most recent grade recorded, whether it is higher or lower than the original grade, and will be the grade used to compute the curriculum and overall grade point average.
A course in which a grade of C-, D+, D, D-, F, U, I, W, or X was earned may be repeated until a grade of C or better is attained.

Additional repetitions will receive a J (audit) grade. If you repeat a course for which you have already earned an A, the subsequent grade will be a J. Both grades will appear on your transcript.
Any original grade earned will remain on the transcript even if you withdraw or fail to complete the repeated course (I, X, or W grade).
While you may repeat a course at another college, only a course taken at NCCC can be used to compute the NCCC grade point average.
If you elect to transfer to another institution, please be aware that the transfer institution may not accept the repeated grade.

If you are a student in one of the following programs, you may be required to repeat a biology and/or major core course(s) in which a grade of A through C was earned more than five years before enrolling in a subsequent course: Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiologic Technology, Surgical Technology and Practical Nursing.
If you elect to repeat a course for which credit has already been earned, you should be aware of the financial aid implications. You should discuss this situation with the Financial Aid Office regarding any consequences that may occur pertaining to the financial aid regulations currently in effect. To become eligible for full-time financial aid, you must register for 12 credit hours IN ADDITION to the repeated course.
