This BSU Student Handbook is a guide to student's rights, responsibilities and resources.
The College of Graduate Studies will allow graduate students to repeat only
one graduate course for which they have received a grade of B- or less.
Although all courses and grades will appear on the students transcript,
credit for the course will be awarded only once unless otherwise stated in
the university catalog. The higher grade will be used to calculate the GPA.
Only courses taken at Bridgewater State University and repeated at
Bridgewater will be eligible for use under this policy. The Course Repeat
form can be found at
Notes: Repeating courses taken in a previous semester may affect certain federal and state benefits, various financial-aid programs, loans, scholarships and social security benefits, in addition to athletic eligibility and veterans benefits. The Veterans Administration will not pay for a repeated course in which a passing grade has been previously earned. Satisfactory academic progress requirements must be met for continued financial-aid eligibility.
Students with more than one failed course should meet with their adviser.
