Grade Deletion Policy for Repeated Courses

Under certain conditions, students who have retaken a course and earned a higher grade may petition to have the first grade excluded from grade point average computation. If the petition is approved, the Office of Student Records will be notified, and the student's transcript will show the notation Repeat (Excluded from GPA) next to the original course and the notation "R" next to the retaken course.

Credit for any repeated course will apply only once toward degree requirements. Grades for all attempts at the course will appear on the student's official academic record (official transcript) regardless of whether or not the grade has been deleted. If a grade has been deleted, only the grade for the last attempt will be used in determining grade point average. All grades, including those for repeated courses, will be included in the determination of eligibility for honors, fellowships, or other distinctions accruing on the basis of GPA. A copy of the approved petition will become part of the student's permanent record file.

A student may petition to have F, D-, D, D+ and C- grades deleted from GPA computation under the following conditions:

1.The repeated course must be completed prior to the granting of the first baccalaureate degree and the grade deletion petition submitted not later than one semester after graduation.

2.Before petitioning, a student must have retaken the same course (or the renumbered substitute for that course) in the same department at The University of Toledo and earned at least a C (2.0) grade.

3.No more than a total of 12 semester hours or the equivalent of 16 quarter hours of course work may be deleted from the student's transcript. A college may adopt a more stringent requirement.

4.This policy applies only to the first recorded grade in a course that a student has repeated.

5.Subject to the limitations described above, applications will be approved unless the instructor attests that the grade was given for academic dishonesty.

This policy will apply to all students admitted Fall 1997 or later. It does not apply to graduate studies.
