Academic Clemency

A student may be given academic clemency for one semester, with a maximum of 21 hours of academic work. The courses for which the student is given academic clemency will remain on the transcript, but grades received in those courses will not be used to calculate the student’s cumulative grade point average (GPA). No credits earned during the semester for which clemency is granted will count toward graduation requirements. Courses passed during that semester need not be repeated, but a sufficient number of additional credits must be earned to meet graduation requirements.

In order to seek academic clemency, the student must not have been enrolled at any higher education institution for three consecutive academic years and must make application in writing to the Vice Chancellor for Instruction. A student may be granted academic clemency only once.
