Academic Renewal

  • Academic Renewal provides a student with the opportunity to continue their academic studies - without the disadvantages of an earlier weak grade-point-average (GPA). A maximum of 15 credits of D and/ or F grades earned at least 5 years before the semester in which Academic Renewal is being requested may be excluded from the cumulative GPA. At least 12 credits must have been earned with a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA since the last semester for which Academic Renewal is being requested.

    Specific grades are removed from the computation of the cumulative GPA, but courses and the grades earned remain on the student’s transcript. Academic renewal does not automatically satisfy academic progress standards for financial aid purposes. Courses approved for Academic Renewal do not count toward graduation requirements or degree completion. The decision of the Academic Renewal Committee is final. Academic Renewal is considered twice a year, in January and August.

    Academic Renewal Request Forms are available in the Student Success Center and the Registrar's Office.
