Repeating Courses and 28 Unit Limit on Repeated Courses

Repeating Courses and 28 Unit Limit on Repeated Courses:

Undergraduate students who receive a grade in a course that is lower than C, including AU, IC, RD, RP, W, and WU, may repeat that course only once more. Graduate students who receive a grade lower than B, including AU, IC, RD, RP, W, and WU, may repeat that course only once more. Note: WM grades do not count towards the repeat rule. An undergraduate student cannot repeat any course once the student has repeated 28 units at SF State, unless the course is described in the current SF State Bulletin as repeatable for credit. Requests for exceptions to this policy shall require the consent of the department chair in which the course is offered and the college dean of that college.

When a student chooses to repeat a course in which the grade was passing, all units attempted and all grade points earned will be used in the calculation of the student's grade point average, but the units earned will be applied to the calculation of total units earned only once. (Units earned toward graduation include courses receiving passing grades only.)

Once a bachelor's degree has been granted, repeating courses for any reason (as a visitor, post-baccalaureate, or Open University student) will not affect the GPA or content of the degree already granted.
