Course Re-take & Repeatable Courses

Students wishing to retake a repeatable course for an attempted higher grade, rather than additional credit, must complete the Request to retake a repeatable course form

Course Re-take

Students may repeat any ECC course at the regular cost of the course if one of the following conditions is met:

  1. If the student has not completed the course with a grade of C or better and the course/grade is necessary to satisfy degree or certificate requirements. The course may be repeated once.
  2. If the student needs to bring his or her grade point average up to the minimum required for graduation. The course may be repeated once.

Students transferring to another college or university should know not all public and private institutions honor ECC’s course repeat policy. Instead of using the higher grade to compute a student’s grade point average, some schools use the average of both grades earned. To avoid difficulties in transferring, students are encouraged to contact the admissions office of their intended transfer institution and review its current catalog.


If a course has been approved repeatable by ICCB, the number of hours for which a course can be repeated is designate in its course description in this catalog. Students should pay special attention to the number of hours that will count toward graduation.
