Academic Forgiveness

By writing to the Enrollment Development Committee, a student may request that a semester of poor performance be dropped from his or her grade point average. All grades will be retained on the transcript.

The following conditions must be met: The student must provide justifiable reasons for the original poor semester’s average; at least two years in non-degree status or academic probation status must have elapsed subsequent to the semester for which forgiveness has been requested, and one of these years must have been spent off campus; and, after return to degree status, the student must have completed at least two successive semesters in full-time study (or eight courses, if a part-time or student) on the Albright campus, at a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) level of 2.500. Requests for academic forgiveness are rarely approved.
