Grade for Retaken Course

College of Dental Medicine-Illinois

If a student receives a failing grade, that grade is recorded on the transcript as a letter grade (an "F" entry). Upon repetition of a failed course, the original grade of "F" remains on the transcript and the repeated course and a new grade is entered on the transcript. The grade for a failed course repeated and passed at Midwestern University or at an outside institution is recorded on the transcript as a grade of "C." For all failed clinical courses at Midwestern University that are repeated and passed, a grade of "C" will be recorded on the transcript. For both preclinical coursework and clinical courses that are repeated, the original failing grade will remain on the transcript but will not be included in the GPA calculations. If a repeated preclinical or clinical course is failed, a grade of "F" is again recorded on the transcript. Students who fail a course a second time will be recommended for dismissal.
