Repeat Fail (RF) Grade Option: An RF grade is given (together with an F grade) when a course failed in an earlier term is successfully retaken. The credits attempted for the RF are excluded from the GPA calculation when the repeated course is successfully completed. The following limitations apply:

  • Students may apply anytime before applying for graduation.
  • Only one RF per course can be issued, regardless of how many Fs were previously awarded, for a course.
  • This option is only available twice during a student’s academic career at the college.
  • The course must be the same as the earlier failed course.
  • The course must carry the same number or greater number of credits.
  • If a student receives an F in a course in which an Academic Integrity violation occurred, the course is not eligible for RF grading.
