Undergraduate Academic Forgiveness Policy
A student may request to have the first grade earned (not a “W” notation) from a retake course excluded from the calculation of the grade point average for a maximum of three (3) courses during one’s undergraduate career, where the original grade earned was a “D” or below. If a student attempts a course a third time and Academic Forgiveness is applied, then all grades except the first will be used to calculate the GPA. Once applied to a particular course, Academic Forgiveness cannot be cancelled or removed and the rule may not be appealed. The Assistant Dean of the area must approve the request for academic forgiveness.
