Readmission FAQs

Students who left the university under academic suspension may apply for readmission for the term following their suspension, but may not qualify for academic forgiveness.

  • To qualify for academic forgiveness the applicant must meet one of the following criteria, and attend the semester in which they are readmitted:
     
    • Academic/disciplinary suspension with a break in enrollment from UNC Charlotte for a minimum of one regular semester [Spring, Fall], and has earned a transferable Associate’s Degree [Associate of Arts (AA), an Associate of Science (AS), an Associate of Fine Arts (AFA), or an Associate of Engineering (AE)] during their period away from the University. An official transcript, with the degree posted, will be required to complete your application.
       
    • A break in enrollment from UNC Charlotte for a minimum period of 12 months and has earned a transferable Associate’s Degree [Associate of Arts (AA), an Associate of Science (AS), an Associate of Fine Arts (AFA), or an Associate of Engineering (AE)] during their period away from the University. An official transcript, with the degree posted, will be required to complete your application.
       
    • A break in enrollment from UNC Charlotte for a minimum period of 24 months.
       
  • Under academic forgiveness, only those courses in which you received a grade of "C" or higher can be used for academic credit. After the end of the add/drop period, during your first semester back, your GPA will be recalculated and all grades below a C will be excluded from your earned credit hours. You will lose credit for any D's earned. Therefore, if you earned a D in a course that is required for your major/graduation, you must retake that course.
     
  • Academic forgiveness is strictly an academic policy and does not apply to Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) calculations for financial aid.
     
  • Academic forgiveness does not remove attempted hours.
     
  • Readmission with academic forgiveness also resets your withdrawal limit hours to the full 16 hours. Please click here to view the university’s withdrawal policy.
     
  • Students may be readmitted one time only under this policy. ​

Academic Forgiveness is applied shortly after the add/drop period in the semester the eligible student returns to the university.

  • Summer-Only Readmission is an opportunity for students who were placed on academic suspension or probation to return to UNC Charlotte as non-degree seeking students and take classes in order to raise their GPA.
     
  • Students who are academically suspended at the end of a Spring semester may register for summer school classes. Students suspended at the end of a Fall semester may apply as a Summer Only student to improve their cumulative GPA.
     
  • Please note that if you choose to take classes in the summer, the 24 month period for eligibility for readmission with forgiveness will start over at the end of the summer term.
