Academic Bankruptcy is designed for students who normally maintain satisfactory academic standards, but whose grades suffer for one semester due to unusual or unfortunate circumstances. To apply for this option, the student must be in good academic standing (excluding the semester for which bankruptcy is sought) and must have reestablished the pattern of satisfactory academic progress that existed prior to the semester for which bankruptcy is sought. If the application to bankrupt a semester is approved, the student’s grades for that semester will be excluded when calculating the student’s GPA, but the student will receive credit only for those courses in which the student earned a grade of C- or above (including S grades). This application should be completed with the help of the student’s academic advisor or department chair.
