Academic Forgiveness Policy

Undergraduate students may make a one-time petition to have up to two consecutive quarters removed from the calculation of their credits and GPA. The course work must have been completed at least five years prior to this petition.

  • Forgiven courses cannot be used to satisfy any academic requirement.
  • Academic forgiveness may be recommended on a case-by-case basis during advising.
  • To be eligible for academic forgiveness, a student must have completed 30 consecutive credits at Eastern, maintained a GPA of 2.5 or higher and have declared a major.
  • Academic forgiveness may not be revoked.
  • Federal regulations do not allow for the consideration of academic forgiveness in the financial aid satisfactory academic progress calculations.  Courses for which you receive academic forgiveness are counted as attempted and earned, and are included in the GPA calculation for financial aid purposes.  If you are receiving financial aid or expect to receive it in the future, you should consult with the Financial Aid Office prior to seeking academic forgiveness.
