Grade Exclusion Policy

Students are offered a once-only opportunity to improve their grade point average, provided they meet the following conditions:

  1. They must not have been enrolled in credit courses at Lake Land College for at least five (5) consecutive calendar years from their last enrollment period.
  2. They must have completed a minimum of twelve (12) semester hours with a grade point average of 2.00 or better at Lake Land after the five- (5-) year waiting period.
  3. Only "F" grades that were earned in a single semester or term of enrollment will be excluded.
  4. The Grade Exclusion policy cannot be applied before the minimum credits, waiting period, and grade point average are earned.

Students planning to transfer to another institution are cautioned that the receiving university may use all grades earned in excluded courses for a computation of grade point average for admission or other purposes. Eligible students should see a counselor or academic advisor to begin the process.
