WCC: Academic Amnesty

The Washtenaw Voice reports that Washtenaw Community College will allow students to request that classes are “academically forgiven” if they perform poorly early in their academic career, but subsequently improve their grades. Says Linda Blakey, associate vice president of Student Services: ”That means no courses or grades are ever removed from the transcript, but it’s noted that those courses that are academically forgiven have been academically forgiven, and the grades received from those courses are no longer accumulated to the GPA.” [Source]
