SSM 202–06: Academic Renewal
To allow credit earned by a readmitted student for courses taken at ASU five or more years ago to be treated as transfer credit
Academic Administration Advisory Council
University Registrar’s Office
A readmitted undergraduate student whose GPA is below 2.00 may petition to have his or her ASU cumulative GPA recalculated, under specific guidelines, to include only satisfactorily completed courses taken at ASU prior to readmission, if the student:
The dean of the college offering the student’s major specifies the minimum number of hours a student must earn to be eligible for academic renewal. The dean must require the student to earn at least 12 hours but may require more than 12 hours.
Credit earned before the absence is accepted in the same manner as is community college transfer credit. Students following catalog year 1996/98 or subsequent may carry forward up to 60 hours of credit for which a grade of “C” or better was earned. Students following catalog years previous to 1996/98 may carry forward up to 64 hours of credit for which a grade of “C” or higher was earned.
|Note:||Selected graduation requirements, including final hours in residence, academic recognition hours in residence, and GPA must be fulfilled by course work completed after academic renewal has been granted.|
Academic renewal may be effected only once in a student’s academic career and is transferable among the ASU colleges. The student’s cumulative ASU GPA is based only on credit earned after academic renewal. However, a student’s complete record—before and after academic renewal—remains on the transcript and may be taken into consideration when a student applies for undergraduate professional or graduate programs.
