Effective Summer 2020
Grade Forgiveness enables students to repeat a course in which they earned less than a C grade. The new grade would replace the original grade and be calculated into the GPA.
Grade forgiveness can only be requested after the student has repeated the course and earned a higher grade.
Students have a maximum of 12 credits for which grades can be forgiven (six credits for an associate's degree)
Only grades of D or F can be forgiven.
After a course has been repeated and a grade has been posted to the student's academic record, a Grade Forgiveness Request Grade Forgiveness Form is completed. An adjusted GPA calculation cannot be reversed.
It is beneficial to discuss implications with Financial Aid, if aid is received.
The original grade remains on the transcript. A notation is added indicating the course(s) for which a grade has been omitted from the GPA.
Students who have graduated are not eligible for Grade Forgiveness.
