grade forgiveness student progression plan Page H/64 in Student Progression Plan Students may repeat a course taken in grades 9-12 for forgiveness if a grade of F or D is earned in a course. High school courses taken in middle school may be forgiven if a grade of C, D or F is earned subsequently. A course is forgiven only if a student receives a grade of C or higher on a subsequent attempt.
grade forgiveness student progression plan A required course may be forgiven by the same or a comparable course taken subsequently. A lower level of the same course is considered comparable because the benchmarks and/or course objectives are similar. A non-specific course requirement may be forgiven by another course within the same subject area. For example, physics may be forgiven by ecology.
grade forgiveness student progression plan Any course that is not being used to fulfill a subject area requirement is considered an elective for forgiveness purposes. An elective course may be forgiven by another course taken subsequently. When using a different course to forgive an elective, the same semester in which the previous D or F was earned, does not have to apply.
grade forgiveness student progression plan Students earning a grade of D on the repeat effort earn credit for that course; however, the initial failing grade is not forgiven. Students may again choose to repeat the same course, and upon earning a grade of C or higher, all earlier grades will be forgiven. In all cases where courses are forgiven under the provisions above, the initial F or D grade(s) will remain as part of the academic history. Students should be advised that many universities calculate GPAs based on all courses attempted.
