Academic Renewal Without Course Repetition

Students may petition to alleviate previous substandard academic performance which is not reflective of present demonstrated achievement. If approved, the semester(s) grades of any units taken at Crafton Hills College during not more than two (2) consecutive terms of attendance, excluding summer session, will not be computed in the student’s grade point average. The student’s permanent records from other institutions will not be altered, (Title 5, §55046). If approved, the annotation of *Academic Renewal* will be placed on the transcript for the indicated course(s). Courses will not be removed from the transcript. Students are advised to meet with an Academic Counselor prior to submitting an Academic Renewal request.
