Course Repeat Policy

Financial Aid may cover a repeated course only when it is repeated to replace an unacceptable grade as determined by a specific course and/or program of study.  Students can speak with staff in the Financial Aid Office to discuss specific situations.  

When a student repeats a course at RVCC, the grade achieved in the most recent attempt will be the grade used in the cGPA calculation. All previous grades will remain on the transcript but are not used in the cGPA calculation. Repeated courses completed at an institution outside of River Valley Community College and transferred in will not replace a previous grade or be used in the calculation of the cGPA.

A Course Repeat Form ( is required to repeat any courses. Third and subsequent attempts to repeat a course will require the approval of the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs.
