Grade Forgiveness Policy

Any student who has not been registered at Rutgers University for at least seven years (including summers) may elect to have grades of D and F for courses taken at either the Newark College of Arts and Sciences (NCAS) (school 21) or University College–Newark (UC-N) (school 62) more than seven years ago expunged from the calculation of their grade-point average at the time of their reentry into either NCAS or UC-N. Those grades will still appear on the transcript of the student, but will receive a credit prefix of E. (The symbol E preceding course credits indicates that no credit is earned toward the degree and that no grade is computed in the cumulative grade-point average.) This grade forgiveness policy will not apply to grades of DF, which signify a failing grade given for disciplinary reasons.
