Course Forgiveness is implemented when a student repeats a course once, the second grade awarded (excluding a grade of W) replaces the original grade in the computation of the cumulative grade point average. The academic standing during the term in which the course was first attempted will not be affected.
When a student repeats a course more than once, all grades for the course, excluding the first grade, will be used to compute the cumulative grade point average. Official records (transcripts) at GSCC will list each course with the grade earned.
A course may be counted only once toward fulfillment of credit hours for graduation. This Course Forgiveness Policy applies to courses taken at GSCC only; respective transfer institutions may or may not accept the adjusted cumulative GPA. That determination will be made by the respective transfer institution.
Course Forgiveness may not be applied to NUR courses.
Course Forgiveness may impact the student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for financial aid eligibility and continued eligibility.
