The academic renewal procedure will permit previously recorded substandard course work, which is not reflective of a student’s
demonstrated ability, to be eliminated in calculating the Riverside Community College grade point average. Only the following grades
qualify: D, F, FW, NP, or NC. Courses repeated for grade improvement are not eligible as the substandard grade has already been
disregarded in the calculation of cumulative grade point average. The guidelines for academic renewal are as follows:
1. A student may request academic renewal for not more than two terms of grades and credits which are not
reflective of a student’s present ability and level of performance.
2. At least two terms of college work (24 units) with a grade point average of 2.0 must have been completed at any
accredited college or university subsequent to the term(s) to be disregarded in calculating the GPA obtained at
RCCD. If using coursework from another college or university, an official transcript is required.
3. If and when the petition is granted, the student’s permanent record will be annotated so that it is readily evident to all
users of the record that no units for substandard work taken during the term(s) are calculated in the GPA will apply
toward graduation or other unit commitment. However, all work will remain on the permanent record to ensure a
true and complete academic history.
**Academic Renewal does not change Financial Aid satisfactory academic progress (SAP) standards or policies.
4. A student may be granted academic renewal only once.
5. A student may repeat work taken during academic renewal terms only if such repetition is necessary to allow
normal progression toward an acceptable educational objective.
If using coursework from another college/university to meet 24 unit requirement, please list name of institution here:
