Dental students who repeat a course, may do so under certain conditions:
Credit hours earned in a repeated course are only awarded once; however, all previous courses and grades remain on the student’s permanent academic record. The grade in the original course is excluded from the cumulative grade point average calculation and only the repeated grade is included in the cumulative grade point average—whether that grade is higher or lower than the original grade. The cumulative grade point average is adjusted at the time the repeated course is graded. If a student audits or withdraws from the repeated course, the earlier grade will remain in the cumulative grade point average. If a student repeats a course at an institution other than Marquette, it will not be included in the term or cumulative GPA but it will fulfill the graduation requirement for the School of Dentistry.At the time of registration, the repeat process is automated for the first repeat of any course that is not an unlimited repeat course. Should a student need to repeat a course more than once, a request to repeat must be filed using the Request Permission to Repeat a Course form in the School of Dentistry Office of Student Services for all courses being repeated that term. This request will only be approved if the student has not earned a passing grade in the course.
The Office of the Registrar is the official keeper of academic records including course registrations, grades, transcripts and diplomas.
