Course Information

You are responsible for the information presented below. Read it thoroughly.

Math 1411 (Calculus) is a freshman level course, and thus is subject to the following conditions when a student retakes it:

  1. Repetition of UTEP freshman level courses (1XXX): If a grade of "A","B", "C", "D", or "F" is earned when the course is repeated for the first time, the previously earned grade is automatically excluded from the GPA calculation. Both grades earned remain on the academic record and the record will be annotated with the symbol (E-Excluded) next to the first grade. The last grade earned is the official grade for a course.
  2. Repetition of UTEP freshman level courses (1XXX) after the first time and repetition of non-freshman level course (2XXX, 3XXX, 4XXX): All grades earned remain on the academic record and are included in the GPA calculation. Exceptional circumstances may be reviewed by the studentís academic dean in consultation with the appropriate faculty member. Grade replacement and GPA recalculation may not occur after graduation.
  3. A course grade received as a result of disciplinary action from the Dean of Students is not eligible for grade replacement for GPA recalculation. The record will be annotated with the symbol (D) next to the grade.
  4. UTEP students are cautioned that under no circumstances may a course taken at this institution and repeated at another college or university be eligible for GPA recalculation, even if the student is involved in first-time repetition of a freshman-level course (1XXX). Courses transferred to UTEP are not calculated in a studentís GPA.
