Course Repeats

The same course taken past the census date more than once is a course repeat. The official day of record for an undergraduate regular term course is the 12th class day (census date).  

All courses that receive a grade will be reported on the student's transcript.

Course Repeat Policy

  • Prior to Fall 1996: Both grades are included in the GPA.
  • Between Fall 1996 and summer 2003: Only the latest grade is included in the GPA.
  • Effective Fall 2003: The highest grade earned is included in the GPA.

Course Repeats and Tuition

Texas legislation now disallows funding on the third or subsequent enrollment in any course other than a non-degree-credit developmental course containing the same content. State regulations allow an institution of higher education to charge a higher tuition rate to a student whose hours can no longer be submitted for state funding.

At TCC, after you have taken a course three (3) times, you will pay the regular tuition plus an additional $60 per semester hour.
