Grade Replacement Information
There are times when everyone needs a “do over” and, if you qualify, there are some unique policies at UNCG that might help you achieve that with some of your classes. With the Grade Replacement Policy, you may repeat certain UNCG courses in an attempt to earn a better grade and then request that the original grade be removed from the GPA and replaced by the grade earned in the repeated course.
- A UNCG undergraduate student can request permission to use the Grade Replacement Policy for up to four (4) courses (maximum of 16 credit hours) in which they have earned a grade of C-, D+, D, D- or F/WF. *
- In cases where a Grade Replacement Request is permitted, the original grade in a UNCG course will be removed from the Grade Point Average (GPA) calculation and replaced by the grade earned in the repeated UNCG course. However, all final grades and attempted credits from all course attempts will remain on a student’s permanent academic transcript and calculated in determining eligibility for academic majors and financial aid satisfactory academic progress (as applicable).
* Due to the academic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, courses originally taken or repeated in Spring 2020, Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 semesters will not count against the four (4) course maximum number of Grade Replacements permitted by this policy.
If you have any questions or concerns about the courses you plan on retaking for Grade Replacement, please contact your advisor in Bryan Undergraduate Student Services.
