A student who re-enrolls at Ohio Christian University after an absence of six or more years may petition the Academic Committee to have the transcript segmented. If the petition is approved, all courses will remain on the record, but the grades earned earlier will be removed temporarily from the cumulative grade-point average, while the hours earned will be carried forward. Subsequent gaps of six or more years will not, however, result in further segmentation of the student’s transcript. The following provisions apply toward this policy:
A student must be re-enrolled and complete a minimum of 30 semester hours at Ohio Christian University before graduation.
The new grade point average will be used for determining academic probation and academic dismissal status.
All grades that had been temporarily removed by segmentation will be reinstated and included in determining the official grade point average for graduation. A cumulative GPA of 2.00 is required for graduation. All grades will appear on the transcript.
The grade point average used for consideration for entrance to academic programs and eligibility for scholarships and honor societies will be determined by the relevant officials or committees; they may at their discretion use both current and previous grade point averages or only the new grade point average.
