Forgiveness Policy

Forgiveness Policy

The College recognizes that some students may not be able to overcome previously earned poor records in order to meet new career and educational goals and/or to meet graduation requirements. Academic forgiveness is applicable once, and only once, for currently enrolled students who have completed at least fifteen (15) credit hours of coursework at LCCC with a 2.0 cumulative GPA or higher for all coursework completed since the last term in which forgiveness is sought. The student may petition in writing to the Committee on Scholastic Standing by completing the “Forgiveness of Grades” petition to have grades of “D” or “F” forgiven and not computed in the grade point average and have the word “forgiven” substituted for the former grade(s). The student may seek forgiveness for up to ten (10) semester or fifteen (15) quarter credit hours.

The course(s) for which the student is seeking forgiveness must not be needed for her/his new career or educational goals. These “forgiven” grades will be included when computing the cumulative point hour average for graduation with honors. Students with previously earned LCCC certificates or associate degrees are not eligible to apply for forgiveness.
