Repeating a Course

Students who need to repeat a nursing course must first petition to do so. See Course Failure and Petition Process sections for more information. The student will register for that course on a space- available basis. If all sections of the course are closed, students must register for the course during a later semester. If progression is delayed for more than one (1) semester, the student may be required to enroll in a 1 credit independent study skills refresher course or demonstrate clinical competence prior to being allowed to continue in clinical courses. Students in regular progression are given preference.

When a student repeats a course, both the new and original grade will appear on their official transcript. However, PLU uses the higher of the two grades to determine the cumulative GPA. For further information regarding PLU’s policy on repeating courses, review the PLU handbook (undergraduate policies & procedures or graduate policies & procedures).
