In fall 1998, the University established the following two policies to assist returning students wanting to complete their degrees, Undergraduate Academic Amnesty and Undergraduate Academic Salvage. Details of these policies are listed below.
Undergraduate Academic Amnesty
Formerly fully admitted FIU undergraduate students who left the University with a GPA below 2.0 and have not enrolled in any university or college for at least six calendar years may apply for Academic Amnesty when submitting a readmission application.
Policy: Readmitted students with Academic Amnesty will begin with a 0.0 GPA. No grades previously earned will be included in the University GPA. However, credit for previous University courses, in which a grade "C" or better was earned may be applied towards a degree, subject to determination by the college of the student's major. All prior courses attempted and grade received will be on the student's transcript. Students applying for Academic Amnesty to a limited access program must meet the admission criteria of the program. Admitted students may not petition for any retroactive change in their academic record.
Undergraduate Academic Salvage
Formerly fully admitted FIU undergraduate students who have been academically dismissed from the University or have a GPA below 2.0, and have received an AA degree from another Florida public institution of higher learning may apply to Academic Salvage.
Policy: If readmitted to FIU under Academic Salvage, students will begin with a new FIU GPA of 0.0 and will be credited with a maximum of 60 semester credit hours. Students must follow the regular readmission application process and complete the Salvage form for consideration to be determined by the student's academic dean.
