Academic amnesty gives former Saint Louis University undergraduate students an opportunity to re-enroll without the burden of past academic difficulties by removing prior grades, from up to two semesters, from their grade point average (GPA).
To be eligible for academic amnesty, students:
- may not have attended Saint Louis University for a period of the last three years,
- must be readmitted to degree-seeking program at Saint Louis University,
- must not have received a bachelor degree from Saint Louis University,
- must meet catalog requirements for the term they are readmitted, and
- may not have previously been granted academic amnesty.
If students are granted academic amnesty:
- it is irrevocable,
- it applies to all courses and credits taken during the chosen one or two semester(s),
- it does not erase courses or credits from students’ records, and
- it removes grades from the grade point average (GPA) with transcript notation. Additionally, the courses and credits may not be applied toward graduation.
Note: Students receiving financial aid need to verify with the Office of Student Financial Services whether academic amnesty will affect their eligibility status.
