Impacts of Repeating a Course

Effective Summer Semester 2009, all of your attempts at a course (repeats) will be recorded on your academic transcript and included in your semester and cumulative grade point averages (CGPA). If credit is awarded for more than one attempt, the total credits earned (Langara credits and transfer credits if applicable) will include the credits from only one of the attempts. The grade for the most recent attempt will be used to meet prerequisite and graduation requirements.

Courses repeated at other institutions and transferred to Langara are not included in your Langara CGPA.
