Grade Forgiveness Policy

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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).]
