Academic Forgiveness Policy

  1. To qualify for the Academic Forgiveness Policy students must not have been enrolled in a Bradley University degree program for at least five (5) years.
  2. Persons who wish to be reinstated at Bradley University under the Academic Forgiveness Policy must petition the Academic Review Board and request forgiveness of previous grades earned at Bradley University. If the petition is approved, grades for all prior Bradley courses will be removed from the GPA calculation. Students will retain credit for those courses with grades of “C” or better.
  3. The forgiven grades shall not count in determining the student’s grade point average for academic probation or dismissal or for graduation; however, they shall remain on the transcript with an appropriate notation, and shall be used in determining graduation honors.
  4. Forgiveness is a one-time option which is final and irreversible once granted. This regulation becomes effective beginning with the first semester of the 1987-88 academic year.
