Minimum Criteria for Institutional Academic Fresh Start Policies
"Academic Fresh Start" is a plan of academic forgiveness which allows undergraduate
students who have experienced academic difficulty to make a clean start upon returning
to college after an extended absence.
The Academic Fresh Start allows eligible students to resume study without being
penalized for his/her past unsatisfactory scholarship and signals the initiation of a new
GPA/GPA to be used for determining academic standing.
Readmitted students who were formally enrolled in the institution as well as transfer
students who meet institutional requirements for admission and who have been separated
from all institutions of higher education for a minimum of four (4) years are eligible for
the Fresh Start.
Institutional policies governing the readmission of former students and admission of
transfer students must be in compliance with TBR policy 2:03:00:00 Admissions.
This policy requires that the "transfer applicant's grade point average on transferable
courses must be at least equal to that which the institution requires for the readmission of
its own students.
Applicants who do not meet the institution's standards may be admitted on scholastic
probation or other appropriate condition. (2:03:00:00 Section II.B.3.)
Each institution may establish an Academic Fresh Start provision which must meet the
following minimum criteria:
Separation from all collegiate institutions for at least four (4) years.
