Grading System

Grade Replacement Policy

With approval from the student’s dean, an undergraduate student may repeat a course in which he or she received a grade of A, B, C, D, or F (including plus/minus grades) and have only the new grade (A, B, C, D, or F, including pluses/minuses) count in determining the student’s grade point average. The former course and grade will remain on the transcript with an appropriate notation.

Note: A grade of W or I in a repeated course will not qualify to remove the original grade.

The grade replacement policy is subject to the following restrictions: (1) the option to replace grades of A, B, C, or D applies only to courses taken since the fall semester, 1996; (2) students must notify their school or division during the semester in which the course is retaken if they plan to repeat a course to replace a grade, and once such a request is submitted, it cannot be withdrawn; (3) a student may exercise this option for no more than five (5) undergraduate courses totaling no more than 15 credit hours, including any courses replaced under the previous FX policy; (4) a student may use the replacement policy only twice for a given course; (5) academic units retain the right to consider a student’s complete academic record for purposes of admission to an academic program or selection for awards; and (6) grade replacement is available for courses taken at any Indiana University campus; however, this policy affects computation of GPA only for courses taken at IU Southeast; student records from other campuses will reflect their grade replacement policies.
