Repeat Policy

Students will be allowed to repeat courses and attempt to earn a higher grade for classes taken at Harper College. When a course has been attempted more than once, only the highest grade received for that course will be used to compute the cumulative GPA. The lower grade(s) will remain on the transcript but will not be used to compute the Harper College cumulative GPA. The repeat policy applies only to courses currently offered. A student transferring to another college should check the institution’s repeat policy as it may differ.

Effective summer 2016 students may repeat a private music lesson a maximum of four times. Students who would like to continue taking private lessons should contact the Continuing Education department to enroll in the course as non-credit.

Note: In the case of courses that are approved to be taken more than one time, the repeat policy is not in effect until the number of approved repeatable hours is exceeded.
