A matriculated student may request academic forgiveness for one semester after a separation from the University of Maine Farmington (UMF) of at least seven years. Only one semester will be forgiven, and all courses taken that semester will be affected. The academic detail (including grades and attempted credits) will be displayed on the transcript but removed from the cumulative GPA calculation. A notation of the semester forgiven will be made on the transcript. No tuition or fee refunds will be issued. The Vice President for Academic Affairs will render the final decision.
Students requesting academic forgiveness should be aware that the GPA listed on the UMF transcript is Farmington's GPA and not what other institutions will necessarily use in making admissions decisions. For example, medical school admissions offices may calculate the GPA based on all courses taken regardless of the forgiven semester.
