An Academic Fresh Start is a plan of academic forgiveness which allows undergraduate students who have experienced academic difficulty to make a clean start upon returning to college after an extended absence. The Academic Fresh Start allows eligible students to resume study without being penalized for his/her past unsatisfactory scholarship and signals the initiation of a new Quality Point Average (QPA) or Grade Point Average (GPA) to be used for determining academic standing. Readmitted students who were formally enrolled in the institution as well as transfer students who meet institutional requirements for admission and who have been separated from all institutions of higher education for a minimum of four (4) years are eligible for the Fresh Start.

For more information, please stop by the Center for Academic Retention and Enrichment Services (CARES) at 500 Wilder Tower or call (901) 678-2393.
