Exclusion of Previous Major Courses from the Institutional GPA

Students may request deletion of previous major courses for graduation scholastic average and hours purposes by completing a Petition to the Faculty. Students should discuss this action with their program advisor first to determine its benefit potential. All courses that were unique to the excluded program will be excluded under this rule.

For example, if a mathematics course is part of the degree requirements for a management degree, and the student requests exclusion, the mathematics course would be excluded along with all management and related courses.

In order to qualify for previous major course exclusion, the student must have officially declared the previous major at some point.
