Undergraduate, degree-seeking students attempting their first baccalaureate degree may improve their grade point average by repeating a course and requesting that the repeated course and its corresponding grade be the one counted in all the student's applicable Grade Point Averages calculations, as described in the Academic Average (Grade Point Average) Policy.
Students may repeat courses without using the forgiveness policy. In this instance, both the original and the repeated grade(s) will be used in the calculation of all applicable Grade Point Averages, as stated in the Academic Average (Grade Point Average) policy. However, earned credit for only the last attempt will apply toward graduation. (Please also see Repeat Hours and Excess Hours Calculation Policies.)
The Veterans Administration will not pay for repeated courses if the previous grade met academic standards. Students should direct questions to the Veterans Affairs Office in the Military-Veterans Resource Center.
Students are encouraged to consult their academic advisor prior to completing a grade forgiveness to ensure this is the best course of action for the student.
Please read through the guidelines at the top of the form. When you are ready to begin your request, select Yes in the drop down menu and click Next.
Courses that are eligible for grade forgiveness will appear in a drop down menu. Select the course you want to forgive and click Next. You'll be prompted to review your information. Click Submit to complete your grade forgiveness.
Once the process is complete, you'll see a link to review your new GPA and the course that was forgiven (it will have an asterisk (*) beside the grade).
NOTE: If you have repeated a course during the current semester, the prior attempt will not be available for selection until seven days after grades post.
Once you have used term forgiveness or two grade forgiveness requests, you will no longer be able to access the form. Once a forgiveness has been processed, it cannot be reversed. You will also not be able to access the form once you have graduated or you have applied to graduate and the term has ended.
Punitive F grades, which appear as "FA" on the transcript, cannot be forgiven.
