A graduate student may repeat any college-level course in which he/she receives a grade of "C" or below. A course may be repeated one time. The Campus Dean or Associate Campus Dean may recommend to a Dean of Advising to grant an exception to this policy upon consideration of the student's individual situation. This would require the student be counseled by the Campus Dean or Associate Campus Dean prior to approval of course registration.
Students enrolled in the graduate degree may have no more than three repeat grades on their academic record, appearing as "repeat excluded" on the student record. Students enrolled in graduate certificate programs may have no more than two repeated grades on their academic record, appearing as "repeat excluded" on the student record. Once a student has reached the maximum number of repeated courses that may be excluded, all subsequent courses where a "C" or below is received will be counted towards the student’s cumulative grade point average. Students may continue to enroll and pursue their program of study until which time they fail to meet academic standards set by the University.
Required courses attempted at Strayer University (attendance established) may be satisfied by transfer credit, subject to all applicable policies, limitations, and requirements, including residency requirements. If the course requirement is satisfied by transfer credit, the Strayer University course grade remains in the cumulative grade point average.
Students who wish to improve their grade by retaking a course for which they have already received a grade higher than F may use financial aid only for the first repeat of that course.
Students receiving VA education benefits may not repeat a course in which they have a passing grade unless a higher grade is required to pursue their program of study. In addition, a VA student may not repeat a course in which they have received transfer credit for the same course.
