We're there with the Office of Financial Aid and the Bursar's Office in a co-located space we're calling Bear Central.

Repeating a Course

Repeatable for Credit

UNC courses designated in the course description as repeatable can be taken multiple times with each passed completion resulting in additional credit hours being awarded. Some courses are designated as repeatable with restrictions (also noted in the course description). Course completions that exceed the listed restrictions will not result in additional credit hours being awarded, but all completions will be recorded on the transcript and be calculated in the cumulative GPA. The highest grade(s) among courses that count for credit will be available for use toward graduation requirements.

Not Repeatable for Credit

UNC courses without a repeatability designation in the course description can be taken multiple times, but hours will only be awarded for one passed completion. Courses not repeatable for credit are subject to the Grade Replacement Policy. If a student chooses not to apply for Grade Replacement, additional credit hours will not be awarded, but all completions will be recorded on the transcript and be calculated in the cumulative GPA. The highest grade among courses that count for credit will be available for use toward graduation requirements.

Repeating Transfer Courses

Transfer coursework granted equivalency at UNC will be subject to course repeatability rules and hours will only be awarded for one passed completion. Transfer courses are not eligible for grade replacement.

Please view the UNC Catalog for more information about this course repeat policy.
