    The Academic Forgiveness Policy at MSUM gives an undergraduate student, who has been away from MSUM at least five years, a one-time opportunity to establish a new GPA. Students who seek redress under the Academic Forgiveness Policy must meet the following conditions:

    • The student must not have been enrolled at MSUM for a minimum of five consecutive years prior to the "point of academic forgiveness."
    • Upon readmission, the student must demonstrate adequate academic ability by completing 12 undergraduate credits at MSUM with a minimum GP A of 2.0 (grade of "C" or higher in each class).
    • Academic forgiveness cannot be granted if a student has earned a post-secondary degree following his/her initial MSUM attendance and applied MSUM credits toward that degree.
