Run Repeat Check Process 21t

Purpose: Use this document as a reference for running the repeat checking process in ctcLink.

Audience: Student Records

Repeat checking rules identify possible course repeats with a warning message as the student enrolls in courses. This process is typically run after the term to properly code the student repeats based on the rules configured. It is generally advised to run this process only once per term as the process will override any manual adjustments made to repeat coding on individual students in the same term.

The following is a list of Repeat Codes and what they are used for:

Repeat Code Title
Repeat Code Usage
REXP: Special Exception
  • Excluded from the repeat checking process
  • All converted Legacy enrollments are coded with REXP. This must be manually removed from an enrollment in order to be included in the process
  • Earns credit and is calculated into GPA
RPIN: Repeat - Included
  • Assigned to enrollment with best grade
  • Earns credit and is calculated into GPA
RPEX: Repeat - Excluded
  • Assigned to two lowest grades
  • Assigned prior attempt when grades are the same
  • Does not earn credit and is not calculated into GPA
RLMT: Repeat Limit
  • Assigned to all enrollments exceeding the three allowed attempts
  • Does not earn credit and is not calculated into GPA

This mode is ideal for processing over many terms that have never been processed for repeat checking when evaluating an individual student.

g.  Check

i.  A: All Courses:all student enrollment records within the selected mode and scope.
ii.  N:Never: Do not check student enrollment records.
iii.  O: Only Repeat Candidates: only those courses in the selected process term for which the repeat candidate flag on the STDNT_ENRL table is set to Y.

h.  Scope

i.  A: All Work for Term:all of the course work on the student's enrollment records, including course transfer credit.
ii.  E: Student Enrollments Only: only courses for which the student enrolled through the internal academic institution. Credit received by transfer is not considered.
iii.  X: Transfer/Test Credits: assigns repeat codes to transfer credit, whether or not the Process on Transfer Credit check box on the Academic Institution page is selected.
