- 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.

Federal regulations do not allow for the consideration of academic forgiveness in the financial aid satisfactory academic progress calculations.
