All grades will remain on the student's official transcript. The original course grade will be annotated to indicate that the course has subsequently been repeated, and the repeat course grade will be annotated on the transcript containing explanations the course was repeated. The original grade will not be computed in the GPA or course hours included in hours earned except in a case in which the student withdraws from the repeated course or takes an incomplete grade.
As of the Spring 2017 semester, the Office of the Registrar automatically applies grade forgiveness to all eligible course repeats at the end of each semester, including the Summer semester, after all grades are posted. Grade forgiveness will not be processed after a student graduates.
Opt-out - If a student does not want to utilize one of their three Grade Forgiveness Options (as of the Fall 2015 term) in the current semester, they may opt-out by petitioning to have the repeated course not be granted grade forgiveness. Opt-out petitions must be submitted online to the Office of the Registrar by completing the Grade Forgiveness Exception Form two weeks prior to the end of the semester in which the course is repeated. See the Academic Calendar for deadline dates!
Rescind - Also, a student may decide that an automatically applied grade forgiveness option is something they did not want utilized for a particular course. If that is the case a student should consider all effects of rescinding an applied grade forgiveness as it relates to their GPA, course flow, anticipated graduation semester, etc. To request that an automatically applied grade forgiveness be rescinded the student should complete the online Grade Forgiveness Exception Form which will be submitted directly to the Office of the Registrar at email@example.com for processing.
