Academic Renewal

The following policy was approved by the UNCG Faculty Senate on October 2, 2002; amended October 23, 2006:

Formerly enrolled students who have less than a 2.0 cumulative GPA and who have not been enrolled in any institution of higher education during the previous three years may apply for academic renewal; or, as an alternative, students who have less than a 2.0 cumulative GPA may apply for academic renewal after completing 30 hours of UNCG-approved college credit with a 2.50 GPA since their last enrollment at UNCG.

All students readmitted/reactivated under the provisions of this policy must earn at least a 2.0 GPA on their first 15 hours following re-enrollment to qualify for renewal. Thereafter, the student must meet the standard for continuation in the University academic good standing policy. Grades will be forgiven only once during a student’s career and cannot be reversed.

Grade Forgiveness

Upon meeting these requirements, all previously completed courses in which grades below a C were earned will be forgiven. The grades of these courses will be shown on the transcript but will not be used in the calculation of the GPA and the hours will not be counted toward degree requirements. The recomputed GPA will be calculated from the courses in which grades of C or higher were earned. Grades of C- (1.70 grade points) or below will not be counted toward degree requirements nor in the GPA.
