A maximum of six course repeats is permitted. The initial grade and all subsequent grades for a repeated course remain on the transcript and are part of the student's permanent record. The most recent grade (regardless of whether it is higher or lower) will be the grade used for QPA calculation. An individual course may be repeated multiple times. However, each repeat of the same course counts as one of the six permitted repeats and an individual course may not be repeated more than 3 times. A course taken at Bloomsburg University and repeated at another institution of higher education is included in the permitted maximum number of repeats. In this case, the most recent grade will be recorded as transfer credit according to PRP3343 Evaluation of Undergraduate Transfer Credits.
