Grade Amelioration Policy

One time in an academic career, a student who is changing programs or VSC schools may, with proper approval, have selected grades excluded from the calculation of his or her cumulative GPA in the new academic program. Grades may only be excluded for courses required in the old program that are not required in the new or subsequent four-year program. All credits earned in courses excluded from the calculation are lost. This policy does not apply to electives or credits used for any diploma, certificate, or degree already awarded.

Approval from the studentís new program department chair or director is required for grade amelioration. The student must have:
  • One term of at least 6 credits with a term GPA of 2.00 or better following the term for which amelioration is requested
  • Approval from the Academic Deans of both the home and sending institutions
