Why were some of my courses not accepted?

We do not award credit for repeated or duplicated classes.  Repeated classes are those taken more than once at the same institution.  Duplicated classes are courses similar in content and level taken at two different institutions; if you complete Principles of Taxation at Northern Illinois University and take the course again at University of Iowa, we will not award/count the credit hours twice.  The policy of the institutions awarding the credit does not supersede the Board’s policy regarding duplicate courses.  The only exceptions to the repeated course rule are courses with the same prefix and title that are allowed by the institution for repeat credit and it is clearly stated as policy in their course catalogue.
