Grade Replacement Policy
(Policy is currently under review)
A student may repeat a course taken at West Georgia
in order to replace an earlier grade earned in a course
taken Fall 1996 or later.
• Grades earned in courses taken at other institutions cannot
replace grades earned in here.
• In courses with variable course titles, the repeated course
must have the exact same title.
• Beginning Summer Semester 2001, students can repeat XIDS
2001, 2002 and 2100 regardless of the titles of the courses
taken.
