Academic Amnesty

An undergraduate student returning to UHD after a minimum of a two-year absence may petition the Dean of University College for application of the academic amnesty policy. The student must not have attended UHD for the two-year period immediately preceding his/her return to UHD. The student must also complete 24 semester credit hours with a minimum grade point average of 2.5 following readmission to UHD.

If academic amnesty is granted, all courses with grades of “F" or "D" earned prior to readmission are ignored in applying credit toward fulfillment of degree requirements and in future computations of the student's grade point average.The amnesty provision applies only to the application of credit toward a degree and computation of the student’s grade point average. No grades on the student's permanent record are altered or deleted.
