Grade Forgiveness (Revised)

(Discounting of Repeated Grades)

Effective Fall 2009 Term

Undergraduate students may request grade forgiveness* (discount a grade) in a repeated course by petition only. Courses may only be repeated if the grade earned is less than a "C".  Petitions for Grade Forgiveness should be filed after completion of the course used to replace the previous course.  A course may be repeated for grade forgiveness no more than two times.  If a "C" or better was previously earned in the course you are attempting to repeat, you will be prevented from enrolling or dropped from this class.  For repeat limits and further information see Guidelines for Grade Forgiveness or contact the Office of Advising and Academic Services at 909-537-5034. To petition, complete the form "Petition for Grade Forgiveness" for Undergraduate Students and submit to the Registrar's Office (UH-171).

*Grade forgiveness is the process whereby a new grade replaces a former grade when calculating GPA.  The first attempt will remain on the transcript, with a footnote indicating the the course has been repeated.  The first attempt will not be calculated in the GPA or units earned.
