You will be informed by the Office of the Associate Provost of his or her decision, and you have the right to appeal his or her decision to the Provost. Grade Adjustment/Course Repeat Policy Auburn University at Montgomery has implemented the following grade adjustment/course repeat policy effective for all currently enrolled, regularly admitted undergraduate students for all courses taken after Fall 2000. Undergraduate students may delete a maximum of three course grades of D or F (including FA or U) associated with their undergraduate degree program from the computation of their cumulative grade point average. Grades and credit considered as transfer credit, grades earned in a previously awarded baccalaureate degree, or grades that have been assigned as a result of academic misconduct are excluded from this policy. This policy does not offer exemption from academic requirements for AUM degrees; adjustment only applies to grades in individual courses. All core and major requirements must be met for graduation. Students should be aware that D or F/ FA or U grades in required courses may be deleted from the computation of the cumulative grade point average prior to a repeat but must be repeated at AUM before graduation. Where a specific course is required for the core or a major, that course must be repeated to replace the deleted grade. Courses covered by this policy and needed to meet core area requirements or elective courses within a major may, subject to the approval of the academic dean, be replaced by any course accepted for that requirement, where applicable. All courses for which a grade adjustment is awarded will remain on the transcript. Courses for which a grade has been deleted from the cumulative grade point average will have the grade recorded and a notation that the grade has been excluded from the earned hours and the cumulative grade point average. Students may submit a written request for grade deletion to their academic dean's office at any time prior to graduation. Once a request for deletion of a grade has been granted and that grade has been removed from the calculation of the cumulative grade point average, the grade and credit cannot be restored. Deletion of grades is only available to currently enrolled, regularly admitted under graduate students and is not available to former students. Students should follow AUM guidelines for the repeat of courses in which grades of A, B, or C have been awarded. However, all grades will be used for determining all academic honors.
