Forgiveness Policy


Academic Forgiveness

The Academic Forgiveness policy (pdf) was prepared in accordance with the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education (OSRHE) Policy Statement on Grading.

Please note that this policy applies to undergraduate credit only. There is no forgiveness policy for graduate credit courses.

Academic forgiveness provides a means for classifying certain courses as "reprieved" or "forgiven" to exclude them from a retention/graduation grade point average (GPA). For students receiving forgiveness, the transcript will reflect a retention/graduation GPA, excluding forgiven courses/terms, and a cumulative GPA, which includes all regularly graded coursework.

There are three types of academic forgiveness that may be utilized for students wishing to improve their academic standing. They include:

  1. Academic Renewal (pdf)
  2. Academic Reprieve (pdf)
  3. Forgiven Course (pdf)
