Request for Course
retake with a Grade of
C or Better Appeal
Student Name: Student ID #:
Term of Request:
Per Florida Administrative Code, 6A-14.0301 repeat enrollment in courses in which a grade of C or above
has been earned is prohibited. Occasionally, under very special circumstances, repeat permission is
granted. Examples are a need for teacher recertification, specifications of a regulatory agency, licensure
and program requirements.
The initial grade and the subsequent grade appear on the transcript, but only the first grade is included in
the GPA with credit earned. The second attempt will not earn credit, will not be included in the GPA, and
the Forgiveness Rule will not apply. Registration for such a course without approval will be cancelled, the
course dropped, and fees refunded.
Deadline: Request must be received by the first day of classes for the session in which approval is sought.
Course(s) for which you are requesting to retake with a grade of C or better:
