Repeated Courses

Some courses, such as research and clinical courses, may be repeated. These are usually indicated in the course description. All grades and grade points are counted in the grade point average for these courses. For all other courses that are repeated, only the last grade is counted in the grade point average. Both the original course and the repeated course appear on student's transcript.

Repeated Courses - Rush Medical College
In the first and second years, the official transcript displays the first time a repeated course is taken until the grade is replaced at which time only the repetition and new grade are displayed. Both the original course and its repetition are recorded on the unofficial transcript for internal use within Rush Medical College. Since all courses are taken honors/high pass/pass/fail, the GPA is unaffected. In the third and fourth years, all instances of a course are represented on the students' official transcript.
