Repeating Courses Policy

The CSU recently adopted some new academic regulations which will impact registration for undergraduate students effective Fall 2010 semester.

Please review the following information carefully to become familiar with these new policies.

Incomplete Grades and Repeat Policy

  • Students may not repeat courses where an “I” grade has been previously assigned unless the “I” grade has lapsed or a grade of “C-” or lower has been assigned
  • Students may not repeat courses where a grade of “C” or higher was previously received unless the course may be taken more than once for credit, or whose academic program – major requires a grade higher than a “C” .
  • Students will be prevented from enrolling in a course where the grade previously earned is a C or better (or Credit), or an “I” grade that has not lapsed.
  • Students may repeat no more than a total of 28 units
  • Students may repeat a maximum of 16 units for grade forgiveness.
  • Courses taken prior to Fall 2010 will not count towards the 16 units of grade forgiveness
  • Students may repeat an individual course for grade forgiveness no more than two times without review and written approval by your academic advisor and/or department chair.
  • Students may repeat an individual course for grade forgiveness no more than one time. A course may be repeated no more than two times without petition.
  • A Petition for Exception to the Undergraduate Repeat Policy will be available during Late Registration. Please check the Registrar’s website for availability.

The Repeat Policy is applicable to all undergraduate students and applies only to courses taken at Sacramento State. Please note that students will be blocked at registration from attempting to enroll in courses where a grade of “I” or “C” or higher has been received.
