Readmission Under Forgiveness Policy
Former East Carolina University students who have not been enrolled at ECU for a minimum of two consecutive academic years (four semesters, summer sessions excluded) may request readmission under the Forgiveness Policy. Such requests must be submitted on the application for readmission according to application deadline dates as specified above. Students who have been enrolled at another regionally accredited college or university since their last enrollment at East Carolina University must submit to the Office of Admissions official transcripts indicating that a minimum cumulative 2.5 average has been earned in all transferable courses attempted.
Subsequent East Carolina University-based GPAs of students readmitted under this policy will be computed without inclusion of previous course work in which a failing grade (F) was received.
Students returning under the Forgiveness Policy will return under one of the following classifications:
- Students whose cumulative GPAs are 2.0 or above once the failing grades are removed will be placed on good standing during the first semester of attendance.
- Students whose cumulative GPAs are less than 2.0 once the failing grades are removed will be placed on probation during the first semeter of attendance.
Students will be held accountable for the academic standing and academic progress requirements as indentified in the academic rules and regulations section.
A student may be readmitted under the Forgiveness Policy only one time.
For degrees of distinction, all ECU grades, including those earned prior to readmission under the Forgiveness Policy, will be included in calculations.
Students should be aware that the Readmission under Forgiveness Policy is an ECU policy that is not recognized in the US Department of Education’s calculation of financial aid eligibility. Students who plan to apply to or receive financial aid should contact the financial aid office. Cashier accounts must be cleared of any outstanding balance, if any, prior to registration for the term of readmission.
Students should also be aware that a substantial tuition surcharge may be applied in accordance with the rules established by the Board of Governors or other appropriate legislative body.
