Undergraduate Academic Forgiveness Policy

Academic forgiveness may be available to students who have grades lower than "C" in courses taken ten or more years ago. This would apply only to courses that do not apply towards student’s degree.  Low grades in required courses need to be repeated to improve a student's grade point average. 

Undergraduate Academic Forgiveness Procedure

Conditions: This privilege can be exercised only once in the pursuit of an undergraduate degree from Robert Morris and cannot be reversed.

Grades of A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, and C cannot be forgiven.

The grades and Cumulative QPA after forgiveness will be used in determining eligibility for all academic honors and recognition based on quality-point averages.

Students may be required to take substitute courses to meet graduation requirements.

Procedures: A student must submit letter of Academic Forgiveness to the Academic Services Office.

Upon approval of the request:

  1. All courses, credits, and grades forgiven will be retained on the academic transcript, but will be bracketed with notation "[Academic Forgiveness Policy in Effect]."
  2. All credits and quality points for courses forgiven will be disregarded in the cumulative calculation of hours attempted, quality points earned, and quality point average.
