What is Repeat Forgiveness?

Students are eligible for “repeat forgiveness” for up to 13 undergraduate credits during their enrollment at Coastal Carolina University for courses taken at Coastal Carolina University. For credits granted under this option, Coastal Carolina University will exclude the grade and credit hours earned for the prior enrollment in the course when calculating the student’s cumulative GPA and earned credit hours. Both grades will appear on the transcript. Only course grades of C, D, D+, F, or WF are eligible for “repeat forgiveness.”  "Repeat Forgiveness" is not available for courses in which the student received a CX, D+X, DX, or FX grade. Special topic courses taken under different titles are not eligible for “Repeat Forgiveness”. Students should be aware that professional schools, graduate programs, and future employers may apply their own criteria that may not recognize a “repeat forgiveness” option in evaluating credentials for prospective students and employees. Repeat forgiveness is processed after the “W” period for a given term. Student may elect not to receive “repeat forgiveness”.
