F-21: Academic Forgiveness

Adoption Date: 12/19/94  |  Revision Date: 05/18/98  |  Revision Date: 09/23/08

 Prairie State College shall allow a student an opportunity to compensate for poor past academic performance through Academic Forgiveness, as defined herein.

After a period of at least five (5) years of non-enrollment at Prairie State College, a student may petition to utilize grades earned in more recent course work to obtain grade point average relief for past academic performance. Such use of recent grades to compensate for poor grades in the past shall be on a credit-hour by credit-hour basis.

A student may utilize this Academic Forgiveness policy only once during tenure at the College. While this policy provides a mechanism for deleting grades from grade point average calculations, all grades, including those forgiven, will continue to appear on the academic transcript.
