Graduate School of Management Repeat Policy
Students in the Graduate School of Management (GSM) cannot repeat courses to improve grades. However, if students have failed a course and are allowed to continue studies, or have been readmitted, and the course is required in their degree requirements, students must retake the course. All grades received, including an F/WF grade, remain in the GSM grade point average. A minimum grade point average of 3.000 is required to graduate.
GSM students who must repeat a course need approval to do so. Approval is granted under certain conditions:
- Normally, the repeated course is taken at Marquette.
- The repeated course is identical to the original course in subject, catalog number, title, subtitle and credits.
- The repeated course is graded with the same grading options as the original, i.e., students may not exercise a different grading option for a repeated course, unless it is now a required grading scheme.
- These courses allow repeats: colloquiums, continuation, placeholder, independent study/research, internships, seminar/reading, studio/workshops, study abroad and variable title courses (e.g., topics) as appropriate to degree requirements.
Should students need to take a course more than once, other than those reference in item #4 above, students must file the Repeat a Course Permission form, found on the Marquette Central academic forms website.
