Apply by March 23, 2016 for courses retaken in Spring 2016

Grade Forgiveness is the opportunity to retake a course and earn a grade that will be substituted for the previous grade in the UCF and overall cumulative grade point averages. The use of Grade Forgiveness is limited to two (2) times during a student's undergraduate career. Grade Forgiveness attempts can only be used on courses taken and repeated at UCF. The deadline to apply for grade forgiveness is the withdrawal deadline during the semester that the class is repeated. Students can apply for Grade Forgiveness on myUCF through the Student Self Service Center.

Note: It is recommended that students do not apply for Grade Forgiveness prior to the start of the semester in which they plan to repeat the course. Students are cautioned to wait until they are closer to the Grade Forgiveness deadline to apply for Grade Forgiveness. This provides students with the opportunity to determine how they are performing in the course before utilizing an attempt. Upon utilizing a Grade Forgiveness attempt, the second grade, whether it is higher or lower than the previous grade, is the grade that is calculated into a student's GPA. Therefore, it is the responsibility of students to ensure that they are aware of the grades earned in their respective courses, and that they must apply for Grade Forgiveness by the Grade Forgiveness deadline.
