Grade Forgiveness

A student who is readmitted to UMM after a period of two or more years may choose to request grade forgiveness for all previous work done at the institution. To qualify, students must have matriculated and enrolled at the time of the request, and have completed at least 15 credits at the institution with a minimum GPA of 2.5 after the point of readmission.

If grade forgiveness is approved, the student retains past credits for courses in which a grade of C- or higher was received. The effect of all prior quality points is nullified and the student’s cumulative GPA is reset to zero. All prior grades earned continue to be displayed on the student’s transcript, though they do not affect the student’s cumulative GPA.

To apply for Grade Forgiveness, eligible students must complete the Request for Academic Forgiveness and submit to the Registrar’s Office. Students must specify on the application the semester before which all grades will be forgiven.
