Undergraduate students are permitted to repeat any course regardless of the grade received. Only the grade received on the last attempt is computed in the overall GPA. This practice applies to MSU and is not necessarily the way other institutions might compute the cumulative GPA upon transfer.
MSU courses for which a failing grade has been received must be repeated in residence unless prior approval has been received from the MSU department head. A failing grade may not be removed by correspondence study or proficiency testing unless approved in advance by the department chair and dean of the college in which the course was offered.
Cross listed courses can only be taken once for credit. If a cross listed course is taken a second time using the different prefix, it will be considered a repeat.
