Fresh Start Policy
Former students re-enrolling after an absence from Delta College of two (2) or more years may submit a request to the Registrar to have their grade point average recomputed using only those grades earned after re-enrollment. A minimum of six (6) credits must be completed before the grade point average will be recomputed. Students are required to meet with a Delta College Counselor or Academic Advisor before submitting an Academic Fresh Start Appeal application. Academic Fresh Start Appeal applications will be available in the Registrar’s Office and processed by that office as well. Consulting with a Financial Aid Advisor is also recommended as Financial Aid appeals have distinct guidelines and are a separate policy from Academic Fresh Start.
I. All courses taken at Delta College will remain on the student’s permanent records/transcripts. All course grades prior to re-enrollment will be converted to P/NC (Pass/No Credit) grades. Courses with grades of A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+ and C will become P grades with credit; all other course grades will become NC grades without credit.
II. Students may be granted an Academic Fresh Start Appeal only once. The cumulative grade point average and Academic Achievement policy conditions will be computed using all grades earned from the point of re-enrollment. Students may request specific semesters to be considered for re-computation. Students must consult with a Counselor or Academic Advisor before submission of the appeal.
III. Regardless of the number of P grades resulting from this policy, a maximum of twelve (12) credits of P grades may be applied towards graduation requirements.
