Walsh University Undergraduate Catalog 2012-2013
Up one level
The Academic Forgiveness Policy applies to any undergraduate student who has experienced academic deficiencies (probation, suspension, dismissal) at Walsh University. The student must not have attended Walsh University for at least 36 months, must have been re-admitted to the university, must have completed after re-admission at least two semesters of course work at the university with a minimum grade point average of 2.5, and must be registered for course work in current semester.
This policy applies only to the semester(s) during which the student was on academic probation, continuing academic probation, suspension, or dismissal. Only those courses with a final grade of "F" (failure) are to be excluded from the student’s grade point average. Although no longer tabulated in figuring the student’s grade point average, "F" grades will remain on the student’s official academic transcript, but annotated with the letter "E" to indicate their exclusion from calculation the cumulative G.P.A.
Additionally, it is the responsibility of the student to re-take any excluded courses that are necessary for graduation.
A student may use the Academic Forgiveness Policy only once and will be noted on the academic transcript. Those who qualify to apply for academic forgiveness under this policy may submit a petition directly to the Dean of Undergraduate Studies.
