Academic Fresh Start - Undergraduate Students
If you’ve been out of school for 4 years or more, when you return and complete 40
credit hours, you can petition to have grades on all your prior coursework (cannot pick and choose) disregarded in calculating his/her cumulative grade point average. A written request
and transcript should be sent to the dean of the college of your major. If the request
if granted, the earlier courses will not count in your GPA nor toward requirements
for graduation or professional licensure but will appear on your transcript.
if you are a transfer student who was granted a fresh start at a Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) school, your fresh start will be honored by the Admissions Office during the evaluation of your transfer credit. The Admissions Office will review and determine eligibility for prior fresh starts from non TBR schools.
