Academic Forgiveness Request Form
Academic Forgiveness is designed to allow Longwood University graduate students who did not remain in good academic standing, and have been separated from Longwood for one calendar year, an opportunity to have all grades earned prior to their readmission removed from their Grade Point Average (GPA). With Academic Forgiveness, NO grades will carry over, even if they were satisfactory, and all Longwood credits earned prior to readmission will be forfeited. To be considered for Academic Forgiveness, the student should start by submitting an Academic Forgiveness Request Form to be approved by the Graduate Dean. If approved, the student is eligible to apply to a graduate program. If accepted to the program, then as a condition of admission the student must maintain at least a 3.0 GPA during the duration of semester(s), session(s), and/or term(s) needed to enroll in their first 6 credits. All credits will be included in the GPA calculation until the GPA condition is met.
Academic Forgiveness will be applied after successful completion of this GPA condition. Failure to meet this GPA condition results in dismissal and no Academic Forgiveness for previously earned grades.
Academic Forgiveness can only be applied once. This Academic Forgiveness policy is specific to Longwood University and may not be recognized by other institutions. It is the student’s responsibility to consult with Financial Aid about how this policy will affect their status.
