Students who fail a course required to complete their program in a term must retake the course during a future term when the course is offered. All attempts of retaking a course will remain on the student’s academic record and all earned grades will be included in the student's weighted cumulative GPA. Consequently, students who retake courses are not always guaranteed to complete the program on time and will have to repay for that course. The price to repeat a course is $275 per credit. Students who extend their coursework beyond their intended program length (e.g., two-year M.A.T. student taking a third year) may be required to pay the full-term fee and will not complete the program with their originating class. Options for retaking a failed course may include taking the course online, if available, or taking the course with a future cohort. In order to continue eligibility for receiving federal financial aid, where available, students must be on track to graduate within 150% of the normal time frame for the program (e.g. within three years for a two-year program).
