Only in an emergency situation may a student request an incomplete "I" grade. It is the student's responsibility to arrange with the instructor for satisfactory completion of course requirements. An incomplete grade must be redeemed within the semester following its receipt, unless otherwise stated, or the student will be automatically awarded a final grade of "F". "I" grades, even when redeemed, are part of the official transcript. INCOMPLETE GRADES EARNED DURING THE SPRING 2016 SEMESTER ARE DUE TO THE INSTRUCTORS NOVEMBER 11, 2016.
Students wishing to register for 19 credits or more must have the approval of both their advisor and the appropriate dean.

Repeating Course For A Better Grade
With prior written authorization from the appropriate advisor and dean, a student may repeat a course to improve the cumulative grade point average. No Barry University course may be attempted more than 3 times. Withdrawals are counted as attempts.
For example, if the student has an F and repeats the course and receives an A, only the A counts. Quality points and credits attempted and earned for the second attempt are counted in lieu of those earned for the initial attempt. Though both attempts remain part of the student's permanent record, the cumulative grade point average will reflect only the grade earned on the second attempt.
THE CREDIT/NO CREDIT OPTION CANNOT BE EXERCISED DURING THE SECOND ATTEMPT TO REMOVE A PREVIOUS LETTER GRADE. COURSES TRANSFERRED FROM OTHER INSTITUTIONS ARE NOT CONSIDERED FOR A REPEAT.
