Academic Advising

Financial Aid will 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. 

When a student repeats a course at the same CCSNH institution, 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. Only those repeated courses completed at River Valley Community College will be used in the calculation of the cGPA; repeated courses completed at an institution outside of River Valley Community College and transferred into the student’s college of matriculation will not be used in the calculation of the cGPA.

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