Scholastic Forgiveness of Grades Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College is committed to assisting students in the achievement of their educational goals through its open-door admissions policy. Some students are not academically prepared for college-level work or encounter problems that result in failure to achieve satisfactory grades. These students often make the decision to drop out or "stop out" until they are ready to continue their education. To alleviate the difficulties associated with low grade point averages, many institutions allow students to eliminate the computation of grades on previous work for purposes of graduation. This practice, commonly referred to as scholastic forgiveness, is not endorsed by all institutions. Any student readmitted to MGCCC may petition for scholastic forgiveness of grades as outlined in the following procedure. Scholastic forgiveness of grades does not change the policies and regulations that govern financial aid and veteran\'s benefits eligibility. Procedure for Scholastic Forgiveness 1.The student must complete the Petition for Scholastic Forgiveness of Grades, which may be obtained from the Director of Admissions. 2.The Petition for Scholastic Forgiveness must be made prior to the end of the second semester of readmittance following 24 consecutive months of non-enrollment at any post-secondary institution. 54'
