The grade forgiveness policy permits a student to repeat a course in an attempt to improve a grade of D or F earned in the course. On the transcript, “repeated” shows the initial attempts and “replaces prior course” indicates the last attempt.
- Grade forgiveness is limited to courses where a grade of D or F was earned. [F.A.C. 6A-14.0301 2(a).] Courses with a grade of C or better will not be granted grade forgiveness.
- Grade forgiveness is limited to two repeat attempts per course. [F.A.C. 6A-14.0301 2(b).] A fourth attempt will be an additional grade calculated in the GPA.
- If the student plans to transfer to another institution, he or she must check with that institution regarding acceptance of “forgiveness” courses in the computation of the student’s GPA.
- Courses that are designated as repeatable, such as choir, music or journalism, or are individualized courses of study, may not be eligible for grade forgiveness. [F.A.C. 6A-14.03012(d).]
