Any student who has not been registered at Rutgers University-Newark for
at least eight consecutive semesters (fall and spring semesters) may elect for grade forgiveness. This would mean grades of D and F for courses taken at
Rutgers University during the previous period of enrollment would be expunged
from the calculation of their grade-point average. These D and F grades will continue to appear
on the student's transcript. This grade forgiveness policy will not apply to XF
grades, which signify a failing grade given as a result of the student's having
been found guilty of an academic integrity violation.
