ON A COURSE REPEAT
Students who fail to complete a course with a passing grade after
two successive attempts will not be permitted to register in that
course for the succeeding College term (one year for Distributed
Learning Students) in which the course is offered, unless special
permission is obtained from the program head (or their designate(s)).
the same course and improving their grade will have the previous
grade removed from their GPA calculations. Students should request
this change through the Registrars Office.
a Grade of D or less in a prerequisite course may not
register in the senior level course. However, courses transferred
to LCC may not be required to meet this criterion. Such determinations
may be made by the Centre Team Leader.
