Worksheet FAQ's

Question:

How does DegreeWorks handle repeated courses?

Answer:

DegreeWorks adheres to AMSC’s repeat polices when producing a degree audit.
Repeating D, F and/or WF Grades:
When undergraduate courses with earned grades of D, F and/or WF are repeated with a C or higher grade, the lower grades will be placed in the Insufficient Course Block. The A, B or C grade will be used in the degree audit.
All D, F and WF grades repeated with a C or higher grade will not be included in the calculation of the AMSC Adjusted GPA.
Repeating A, B and/or C Grades:
When undergraduate courses with earned grades of A, B and/or C are repeated with a C or higher grade, the highest grade will be used in the degree audit and all other grades will be placed in the Insufficient Course Block.
All A, B and C grades are included in the calculation of the AMSC Adjusted GPA.

Note: Courses that are repeatable (i.e., SA 4490, etc.) will be used by DegreeWorks multiple times.
