Academic departments may provide a rerun of courses in which many students have received a fail grade and where students have expressed a strong desire to retake during the Long Vacation Session during the Summer or Long Vacation Session.

Students are charged a fair cost per credit hour in order to enrol, therefore lecturers who teach such courses are paid separately from their usual wages.

Only classes that result in a University-determined viable number of registered students are offered; otherwise, classes that do not result in such a number are canceled, unless a lecturer offers in writing to teach it as a tutored study, which pays less.
