Academic Clemency

Degree-seeking undergraduate students who have been away from the University for at least 5 years, and return to pursue their initial baccalaureate degree are eligible to use academic clemency for courses taken previously at the University of Maryland. Under clemency, up to 16 credits of D+, D, D- and F grades may be removed from the calculation of the student's cumulative grade point average (GPA). Students must request academic clemency in their first semester of registration upon reenrollment. Students should contact their advisor to discuss this policy and fill out the request form.
