Effective: February 24, 2011 Revised:  

Reference:  Educational Services
Purpose: To define the Academic Renewal process
Scope: A student may request academic forgiveness to remove up to 15 credits from his/her grade point average on the RRCC college record. This is a one time request.

Attachment: None

The Academic Renewal process allows students to better their grade point average (GPA) by removing up to 15 credit hours from the calculation.

All course work taken at RRCC is reflected on the student transcript. However, a student can petition once to remove up to 15 credit hours of grades earned at RRCC from the overall GPA. The student must not have been in attendance at RRCC for at least 2 years. After returning, the student must complete at least 6 credit hours with a minimum GPA of 2.0.  The removed credits will not be used in the calculation of the GPA, graduation, graduation honors or total earned hours. However,  these grades and credits will still appear on the student transcript. This process is not reversible. All credits removed will still be deducted from the College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend eligible hours.

The student initiates the process in the Student Records Office.  Student Records will determine if the student is eligible and then process the request.
