GRADE REPLACEMENT POLICY
Effective immediately, the Registrar's Office will accept requests to replace "D" and "F" grades after Census Day. The Registrar's Office will not automatically replace a student's D or F with the new grade. The student must file a written request using the proper form with the Office of the Registrar in order to complete this transaction. All other aspects of the existing policy, such as the credit hour limit and the limit on attempts remain in effect.
GRADE REPLACEMENT POLICY
- - APPLIES ONLY TO CLASSES TAKEN AT UTA
- - Upon receiving a grade of D or F in a course, a student may retake the course ONE ADDITIONAL TIME

- - This policy applies only to the second time a course is attempted
- - Both grades received will be shown on the student's transcript
- - This policy will apply to a maximum of TEN credit hours at UTA
All withdrawals AFTER the initial grade are considered as attempts. This policy will not be applicable to graduate students/graduate courses. Individual colleges and schools may limit this policy.

Really Important NEWS:
Resident undergraduate students who began college in fall 1999 or later and do not meet certain exemptions (below) will be charged the out-of-state tuition rate if they accumulate 45 or more hours beyond the number of hours required for completion of their degree. For example, a student who is enrolled in a program that requires 128 credit hours would be charged non-resident tuition if s/he is still working toward his/her first bachelor's degree after accumulating 173 (128 + 45) qualifying hours. Qualifying hours include w, d, and f grades from all state-supported institutions; thus, even though w, d, and f courses taken at other state-supported institutions do not transfer to uta, they are counted toward the floating 45 limit. See the undergraduate catalog for more info.
