Can I get TAP for repeating a course?

A repeated course that you previously failed may be counted towards full-time enrollment for TAP purposes, as long as you are meeting the TAP Good Academic Standing requirements.

If you repeat a course that you previously passed, you may not count the repeated course towards full-time enrollment for TAP purposes. This means that in order to receive TAP in a semester where you may be repeating a course you passed previously, you must have, in addition to the repeated course, at least 12 credits or equated credits of non-repeated courses.

Remember that for TAP purposes all courses that make up your minimum 12 credit full-time enrollment status must count for your degree. [see TAP enrollment requirements]

Can I get TAP for remedial classes?
