GRADES AND GRADING

**COURSE RETAKES

Students may make a request to retake courses to earn credit or improve their grade by contacting their counselor. The retake grade will count toward the student’s grade point average (GPA). The first attempt will remain on the student’s transcript, noted by an R (signifying a Retake), but will not count toward GPA. Should the student attempt a course a second time and earn a grade lower than the first attempt, the highest grade of the two will remain on the transcript and will be calculated into the GPA.
