Grade Replacement Policy

Repeating a Course to Replace a Grade
A student may repeat a course taken at West Georgia in order to replace an earlier grade earned in a course taken Fall 1996 or later. Grades earned in courses taken at other institutions cannot replace grades earned in courses taken at the University of West Georgia nor can grades earned at the University of West Georgia replace grades transferred in from another institution. In the case of courses with variable course titles, the repeated course must have the exact same title as the original course. Beginning Summer Semester 2001, students can repeat XIDS 2001, 2002, and 2100 and use the grade replacement rules regardless of the titles of the courses taken. The academic standing and graduation GPA will be based on the last attempt at all courses taken at the institution. This means that if a student takes a course a second time and does worse in it, the second grade is still the one that counts.
