Courses may be repeated for grade improvement; only the highest grade earned is used to determine the student’s cumulative grade point average. However, all courses that receive assigned grades appear as part of the student’s permanent academic record.
Note: The Texas Legislature has mandated that a course repeated by a student more than twice at a public institution of higher education may not be reported for state funding. As a result, the institution must either pass the non-funded portion to all students or charge a supplementary fee. Consequently, Weatherford College has chosen to assess a supplementary fee to only those students repeating the course more than twice, beginning with Fall 2007 semester. For courses being taken for the third time, students will be charged $50.00 per semester credit hour ($150.00 for a 3 hour course) in addition to tuition and required fees associated with the course. Students will be notified at the time they register for a course that it has been taken twice at Weatherford College and is subject to the supplementary fee.
