Second Chance Provision

Any undergraduate student who has been admitted or readmitted to the University after an absence of three or more years from higher education can earn second chance status, which provides an opportunity to eliminate from computation of the grade point average any grades of D, F, or WF received before admission or readmission to UNA.

To earn second chance status, the student must achieve a grade point average of at least 2.0 during the first 24 credit hours of completed course work at UNA following admission or readmission.

Students meeting these standards must file a formal application in the Office of the Registrar to eliminate from computation in the grade point average any grades of D, F, or WF received before admission or readmission. Educator preparation majors should contact the college dean concerning restrictions that may apply. In the Anderson College of Nursing, no student will be permitted to use the Repeat/Recompute or Second Chance Provision for any nursing course (NU designation). All grades shall remain on the student’s transcript, however, with an explanation of the Second Chance Provision.

Students failing to comply with the standards outlined above shall not be eligible for second chance status again. Any student admitted or readmitted to the University after an absence of three years or more will be informed of the Second Chance Provision in the letter of admission.
