Fresh Start Rule

  1. An undergraduate student who re-enrolls at D’Youville University after an absence of five or more years may petition the Registrar to re-evaluate all coursework attempted in the student’s previous residency. If the petition is approved, all courses taken will remain on the permanent record. Those with grades of C- or higher or S (satisfactory) will be counted for credit; all others will not.
  2. If the petition is approved, the student resumes his/her academic program with no cumulative grade point average and, therefore, is subject to the conditions of warning, probation and dismissal that govern all students.
  3. Under the provisions of this rule a student prior to graduation must be re-enrolled for a minimum of 30 credit hours.
  4. All courses ever taken at D’Youville University will be used in the calculation of the cumulative grade point average required for graduation with honors.
