Granted Fresh Start Fresh Start Links

You will be granted an Academic Fresh Start once your application has been approved by the college dean. An Academic Fresh Start is granted only once. Your permanent record will retain a record of all past course work; additionally, you will forfeit the use of graded course work from any college or University for degree purposes at The University of Memphis earned prior to the 4-year separation.

The date of the Academic Fresh Start will coincide with the date of re-entry following the prolonged separation and the permanent record will also carry the notation, GPA and credit totals are based only on work beginning with that date. That date will be treated as the date of entry in determining which Undergraduate Bulletin may be used for graduation.

The University of Memphis honors the Academic Fresh Start when completed at other accredited institutions of higher education. Preliminary information and application forms may be obtained from the Office of Academic Status & Retention, Suite 200 Wilder Tower.
