Effective autumn semester 2015 students can petition to repeat a course and if approved use the grade of this course to replace the first in the calculation of the student’s cumulative GPA. There are conditions that must be met in order to submit a petition:
- The student must have earned a letter grade (A-E) in the course to be forgiven.
- The student must not have previously repeated the course to be forgiven.
- The student must not have already used the Grade Forgiveness rule for three or more courses.
The petition to use the Grade Forgiveness rule must be submitted in consultation with the student’s academic advisor to the college of enrollment by the Fourth Friday of the term in which they will repeat the course. Approvals will be processed and added to student records after the Tenth Friday of the term. Please see https://registrar.osu.edu/secure/GradeForgiveness/ to access the online petition.
