Repeat Option
Undergraduate students receiving a grade of D or F in a course may use the Repeat Option UP TO FOUR TIMES during the course of their degree program.  Exercise of this repeat course option is subject to the following restrictions:

  • This applies only to courses taken at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
  • The option may be exercised only once for each course.
  • Students opting to apply this option must visit Registrar’s Office to indicate their intent to repeat the course(s).  Courses that are repeated will appear on the student’s transcript with the appropriate prefix next to the credit value of the course.  Students may choose to use the repeat option during the semester the student is taking the repeated course(s).

Both the original and the repeated course grade appear on the student’s transcript, but only the better of the two grades of the repeated course is computed in the cumulative grade-point average.   Degree credit is granted only once when the student earns a passing grade for the course.
