Freshman Forgiveness

Upon completion of their first term of matriculation, first-term freshman students may request that all earned F grades for credit-bearing classes, regardless of program or department offering them, be removed from GPA calculations for that semester.  Any F grades which the student requests forgiveness of will be reflected as NC on the academic transcript, and the NC will have no impact on the student’s GPA.

For a course to be eligible for forgiveness, the student must remain in the class for the entire term and a grade of F must be earned. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for deadline to submit Freshman Forgiveness Request. Students may ask for one or more earned F grades to be forgiven, up to the entire amount of credits being taken in their first term of matriculation. The deadline to submit for the fall semester is Jan 1st. The deadline to submit for the spring semester is June 1st.

First-term freshmen with college credits earned through Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE), college preparatory programs including College Now, and/or coursework from non-accredited or accredited post-secondary institutions are still eligible for forgiveness under this policy. 

Grades of D are not eligible for forgiveness.
