Repeating Courses

3rd time attempts in the College of Business are only approved on a space available basis during fall, winter, and spring term. Space availability is determined on the date of open enrollment and then monitored through the end of the change of schedule period


  • Students are allowed two attempts at College of Business courses before additional approval is needed.
  • Students attempting to take the same course a third time may do so only with permission of the course instructor, the department chair, and the Director of the College of Business.
  • Unless otherwise designated as repeatable, College of Business courses may not be taken more than three times.
  • When a course is repeated, only the last grade earned will be used in the computation of the cumulative and major grade point averages. All grades will remain in the student’s official record.
  • Unless designated otherwise, students can only earn credit for a course once, this includes transfer credit.
  • Any CWU course repeated at another institution is subject to the following requirements:
    • May be transferred in for CWU credit.
    • Will be used in calculating both the CWU and the transfer GPA.
  • Students are only allowed two attempts of BUS 241 (Legal Environment of Business). Attempts at other institutions will be counted towards this if a student is seeking an additional attempt at CWU.

If you are a current student at CWU, and feel that you may be need to repeat a class, please reach out to your Academic Advisor to talk about your options and how this will affect your graduation plan.
