Students who have received a D+, D, D- or F may repeat for forgiveness. Students need to request this, it is not automatic. Students may not add into a course for forgiveness until other students have registered. The “forgiven” attempt counts, rather than the first (whether or not it is an improvement). A “forgiven” attempt that ends with a “W” counts as one of their forgiveness attempts. The policy begins with fall registration and is not available for summer 2015. The original attempt still shows on the transcript, with an “E” indicating this grade is exempt from GPA. Students are limited to 3 forgivenesses, 1 per course. Students may appeal if first attempt was C- through the ASC. Students will request through the Registrar’s office if they wish to repeat without forgiveness. Students may not use this policy with transfer courses.
Students are instructed to select as many sections of a course as will fit into their schedule. As approver you will see all of these and can indicate approval for any sections that fit with your department’s needs. The student will only be able to register into one section of the course.
Once the student has put in a request, you will receive an email:
You have received a request from a student to repeat a course for grade forgiveness. Please answer “accept” or “deny” through your Treehouse portal. [These are run nightly on all requests]
When you click on the bottom link you will see a list of all requests to approve. You will receive weekly reminders of requests for you to review and either accept or deny.
