Academic Renewal

Students who withdraw from the University following one or more terms of poor academic performance occasionally return to the University to continue their education. Their prior low GPA may not be indicative of their potential and may pose a significant challenge to achieving University standards of acceptable academic performance. Prior low grades may also serve as a deterrent to re-enrollment to resume study. Academic Renewal is designed to give returning students a second chance by providing an opportunity to remove a certain portion of prior course work from grade point computation.
