The purpose of the grade exclusion policy is to provide the mature student an opportunity to achieve his/her educational objective without the demoting effects of previously earned failing grades. To be eligible for consideration under this policy, a student must meet the following criteria:
1. He/she cannot have attended any post-secondary educational institution for two consecutive semesters. (Summer sessions are not counted as semesters for this policy, but three consecutive academic quarters are considered the equivalent of two semesters.)
2. Upon returning to IVCC after the two consecutive stop-out semesters, he/she must complete a minimum of 12 semester hours with a grade point average of 2.0 or better.
3. Upon satisfying criterion 2, the student must apply to the Records Analyst in the Admissions and Records Office for implementation of the grade exclusion policy.
Explanatory note: Only Failing (F or WF) grades will be excluded from the computation of the cumulative GPA under this policy. If the student wishes to repeat some courses in which failing grades were received, he/she may utilize the college repeat policy for those courses by completing the appropriate form in the Office of Admissions and Records.
*Students planning to transfer to another institution are cautioned that the receiving college may use all grades earned in repeated or excluded courses for computation of GPA for admission or other purposes.
Understanding Credit Hours
College credit hours are earned by students when they spend hours learning a skill or a specific body of knowledge. At IVCC, credit hours are assigned to each course when it is developed. One credit hour is equal to one 50 minute class "hour" per week for lecture course over a sixteen week semester. The number of credit hours assigned to a course and required for student attendance are equated, based on the length and method(s) of the course. Credit hours equivalents vary for different kinds of methods (lecture, lab, field experience, etc.). All courses, including assigned credit hours, are approved by the Illinois Community College Board.
