(Revised & Approved June 7, 2018)
Students readmitted after July 1995 will be eligible for forgiveness under the Academic Forgiveness Policy unless the student has been placed on final academic suspension. Application for forgiveness may be made by completing the appropriate form available in the Office of the Registrar. The student’s request for forgiveness must be submitted during the readmission semester.
When forgiveness is granted, grades of either F and IF or F, IF and D earned prior to the five year period immediately preceding the beginning of the readmission semester are excluded from the computation of the grade point average, including those grades that appear as transferred grades on the official transcript. No grade will be removed from the permanent record. The academic forgiveness policy may be applied after a student has earned 12 credit hours that apply toward graduation with a G.P.A. of 2.0 at Shepherd University.
