Course Repeat Policy

Main page content

Students must receive a minimum grade of 2.0 in any course that is required for a SET major. Students who receive a grade of less than 2.0 in a required course will need to repeat it. Grades for both attempts will be listed on your transcript and factored into your cumulative GPA, but you can only receive credit for taking the course once. See the UW Tacoma Course Repeat Policy for more details. 

Students who need to retake a SET class must complete and submit the petition to repeat a course. Once a petition is approved, an advisor will assist with registration. Please keep in mind that while petitions to take a course a second time are frequently approved, permission to repeat for a third time are granted rarely and only in extenuating circumstances.
