Course Repetition

When a course is taken more than once, the grade used to compute the student’s GPA is the best earned grade.

Per Texas Administrative Code §13.105, after attempting an identical course twice at TWU, a student will be charged additional tuition for all subsequent enrollments in that course.  Certain exceptions to this rule may apply, such as thesis and dissertation courses, independent study, and special topic or seminar courses. In addition, certain courses may be exempt because they involve different or more advanced course content each time they are taken, such as individual music lessons or performances.

An attempted course is one in which the student is enrolled in as of the official census date for that term.
