If you receive an unsatisfactory grade, you may repeat the course at Hawkeye Community College or another accredited college, or receive credit by examination.
The original course will be marked as repeated after a grade for the repeated course has been awarded. Your original grade will not be counted in your current cumulative GPA, however, it will be displayed with a <R on your transcript. You cannot repeat a course and then choose the better of the two grades. Your repeated course grade will be counted towards your academic record and transcript. This does not apply to courses designed to be repeated.
If you withdraw from a course you are repeating for a better grade, your original grade will remain on your academic record. If you receive an unsatisfactory grade in a course designed to be repeated for additional credit, the new grade does not replace the old grade.
Repeating a course with an original D- grade or better may also cause your financial aid award to be adjusted.
