Office of the Registrar

GPA Recalculation Policy for Repeated Courses

Under certain conditions, students who have retaken a course and earned a higher grade may petition to have the first grade excluded from their grade point average. If the petition is approved, the Office of the Registrar will be notified, and the student's transcript will show the notation "Repeat (Excluded from GPA)" next to the original course and the notation "E" next to the retaken course. Credit for any repeated course will apply only once toward degree requirements. Grades for all attempts at the course will appear on the student's official academic record (official transcript) regardless of whether or not the grade has been deleted. All grades, including those for repeated courses, will be included in the determination of eligibility for honors, fellowships, or other distinctions accruing on the basis of GPA*.  A copy of the approved petition will become part of the student's permanent record file.

*Effective 2022 Fall the UT GPA will be used to determine eligibility for University, collegiate, departmental or professional honors and other recognition based on the student's undergraduate academic performance.  The UT GPA includes all course work taken at the University of Toledo, adjusted by the GPA Recalculation policy and/or the Academic Forgiveness policy.

A student may petition to have a grade excluded from GPA computation under the following conditions:

  1. The repeated course must be completed prior to the granting of the first bachelor's degree, and the grade deletion petition must be submitted no later than one semester after graduation.
  2. Before petitioning, a student must have retaken the same course (or the renumbered substitute for that course) in the same department at The University of Toledo and earned a higher grade in the course retaken.
  3. No more than a total of 18 semester hours of course work may be deleted from the student's transcript. A college may adopt a more stringent requirement.
  4. This policy applies only to the first recorded grade in a course that a student has repeated.
  5. Subject to the limitations described above, applications will be approved unless the instructor attests that the original grade was given for academic dishonesty.
  6. This policy does not apply to graduate and post-baccalaureate professional studies.
