I.  General Principles

  1. All students are allowed to retake course in which he/she has failed.
  2. The total number of units taken in each semester, including the repeating course, must not exceed 21.
  3. For students of 2017 cohort and before, they may only repeat courses with Grade C or below for improvement of their GPA. All courses repeated or retaken for points are counted in the GPA calculation the same way as new courses.
  4. For students of 2018 cohort and onward, they may only repeat courses with grade F to retrieve the failure. Only the highest grade of the repeated course will be included in the calculation of cGPA. Students can only repeat the same course twice. There is no limit on the number of courses to be repeated.

II.  Retaking Core/Required Course

  1. A student is required to retake and pass all the core/required course in which he/she has failed in order to fulfill the graduation requirements.
  2. Students should attend the online course Add/Drop during the designated period to register for the course(s) they would like to retake.
  3. A student may encounter class time clash with his/her existing course timetable when he/she intends to retake courses. Under such circumstances, he/she should decide which course to take first in that semester and leave others to take in future semesters.

III.  Making Up for the Lost Units of a Failed Elective Course

  1. A student who failed in an elective course should make up for the lost units in order to fulfill the graduation requirements.
  2. Student can choose either the following ways to make up for the units:
    2.1   To re-take and pass the exact SAME failed elective course.
    2.2   To take and pass ANOTHER elective course (under the same course category) which is different from the failed one (e.g. to take and pass “Spanish I” instead of re-taking the failed “French I”).
  3. Students should attend the online course Add/Drop during the designated period to register for the course(s) they would like to retake.
  4. A student may encounter class time clash with his/her existing course timetable when he/she intends to retake courses. Under such circumstances, he/she should decide which course to take first in that semester and leave others to take in future semesters.
