Repeating a Course | Pierpont C&TC

(Effective August, 2007) Pierpont Community & Technical College enforces Series 22 of the West Virginia Council for Community & Technical Education as follows:

If a student earns a grade of “D” or “F” (including failures due to regular and/or irregular withdrawal) on any course taken no later than the semester or summer term during which the student attempts the sixtieth semester hour, and if that student repeats this course prior to the receipt of a degree, the original grade shall be disregarded and the grade earned when the course is repeated shall be used in determining his/her grade point average. The original grade shall not be deleted from the student’s record. Courses passed with a grade of “C” or better may not be legally repeated.

Grades for courses repeated more than once or repeats of courses attempted in semesters following the one in which the sixtieth hour was attempted will be used in determining grade point average.

Courses completed at Pierpont with a grade of “D” or “F” may be repeated at any West Virginia public institution, provided the course at the other institution is deemed an equivalent course by Pierpont and the above stipulations are met. Regularly enrolled students who complete work at another accredited institution must secure written permission from the registrar before attempting such coursework. The transfer grade policy will apply to these grades.

Courses taken at other West Virginia public institutions that are legally repeated at Pierpont will be a part of the repeat process, provided the course at the other institution is deemed an equivalent course by Pierpont and the above stipulations are met.
