Academic Clemency


Act 1000 of 1991 requires that state colleges and universities establish policies for academic clemency for undergraduate students. UAFS has a policy whereby students who have not been enrolled in a college or university for a five-year period may petition to have grades and credits earned prior to that period removed from consideration in their cumulative grade point average. Students should contact their academic advisor for petition procedures.

Students who were enrolled in UAFS during the spring semester of 1991 or thereafter are eligible to apply for academic clemency through your advisor. If granted, academic clemency applies only while attending UAFS and may not be accepted at another institution.

Academic clemency does not affect eligibility for financial aid or athletic participation. Contact the UAFS VA representative for information regarding academic clemency and veterans benefits.
