Academic Forgiveness Provisions

The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education grading policy for state colleges and universities includes two academic forgiveness provisions. The repeated courses policy and the academic-reprieve policy may help a student overcome low-academic standing by establishing a retention and graduation grade point average in addition to the cumulative grade point average. Although the academic transcript will continue to be a full and accurate reflection of the student’s academic performance, the academic forgiveness provision will be reflected in such matters as how the retention and graduation grade point average is calculated. Students who believe the academic forgiveness provisions outlined below will assist them in meeting academic goals should contact the Registrar’s Office for application forms and additional information.
