Reexamination (Retest)

Downers Grove, IL Campus

Reexamination occurs when the student fails a course, but qualifies for a reexamination. It is the prerogative of the course director to offer or not offer a reexamination for a course failure and to determine the eligibility criteria for a reexamination. If a course director has a reexamination policy, it must be stated in the course syllabus.

If a student qualifies for a reexamination, a grade of "I" must be submitted to the Registrar at the end of the quarter. The reexamination must be completed within 10 calendar days starting from the last day of final examinations for the quarter. If the student passes the reexamination, the grade of "I" will be converted to the minimum passing grade of the college/program. If the student fails the reexamination, the grade of "I" will be converted to a grade of "F".
