The academic renewal policy allows students to select any consecutive terms and have all the courses from those terms removed from their GPA calculation. All courses in the selected term(s) will not count for degree requirements or for graduation.

This policy recognizes that, for various reasons, some students have had some previous college work at Normandale that has been unsatisfactory. This policy also recognizes that students can change, mature or rediscover their potential and an appreciation of the benefits of an education.

Even though academic renewal excludes credits and corresponding grades from degree requirements and grade point calculations, these courses are not removed from the student's academic record.
