Academic Forgiveness Policies

Fredonia offers three options to help undergraduate students repair their academic records: First-Year Student Forgiveness, the Restart Option, and Academic Bankruptcy.

  1. Students may use only one of the three options during their undergraduate career.
  2. Forms are available through your Google Drive. Follow the instructions at the beginning of each form regarding completion and sharing of the document.
  3. Students initiate the application process for First-Year Student Forgiveness and the Restart Option, after speaking with their academic advisor. For Academic Bankruptcy, students should first speak with a representative from the office of the Provost.
  4. When a course previously-passed with a grade of D-, D, or D+ is excluded from the GPA calculation, under any of these policies, credit is lost for those courses and they will not count towards meeting any degree requirements, including the CCC.
