Grades earned in all courses remain on students' permanent academic records; however, University policy holds that repeated courses affect the calculation of official G.P.A. as follows:
- Credit is retained on the first A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, and all grades in subsequent attempts are included when calculating G.P.A., and
- the first PSU grade of D+, D, D-, or F is excluded in calculating G.P.A. if the course is repeated at Portland State University for a differentiated grade (not Pass/No-Pass). Credit is retained on the last grade received.
Students who have repeated course work must submit a completed Notice of Repeated Course form to the Registration windows in the lobby of Neuberger Hall to ensure that an initial D or F grade is excluded when calculating G.P.A. and that the official G.P.A. is reflected on student transcripts.
