Academic Renewal

The academic renewal policy permits undergraduate students who return to Clarion University after a minimum four-year absence the one-time option of having D and E coursework excluded from their quality point average (QPA) calculation.  Students enrolled in a bachelor's degree program may have up to 18 semester hours excluded from their QPA calculation.  Students enrolled in an associate's degree program may have up to 9 semester hours excluded from their QPA calculation.  These semester hours must have been completed at Clarion University prior to readmission.  The courses, grades, and probationary actions will remain on the transcript with an appropriate notation of academic renewal approved.

Students must successfully complete a minimum of 30 hours before receiving a baccalaureate degree.  Students must successfully complete a minimum of 15 hours before receiving an associate degree.  Students may complete a Request for Academic Renewal form upon completion of 12 semester hours after readmission with a minimum semester QPA of 2.00.

Class Withdrawals

Students who are unable to complete any courses for which they have scheduled must officially withdraw from the class.  Effective Fall 1999, undergraduate students will be permitted a total of five (5) class withdrawals at Clarion University during their undergraduate career. At the time of implementation each continuing student will have five additional course withdrawals regardless of the number of class withdrawals processed prior to Fall 1999.  Check your degree audit to determine number of class withdrawals processed since Fall 1999.

Follow these procedures to withdraw from a class (if you have less than five):

  • Print out the PDF fill-in form from the Registrar's Office forms page OR pick up a Class Withdrawal Form at the Registrar's Office, 122 Carrier Administration or from any department office.
  • Complete the form and obtain the signature of your academic advisor.
  • Return all copies of the completed form to the Registrar's Office before the last day of class withdrawals. Class withdrawals will not be processed after this date.
  • Students attending Venango Campus may initiate and complete class withdrawals at the Administrative Office, Frame Hall.

A grade of W will appear on the student's academic record which carries no quality point bearing.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

If a withdrawal is not made through the Registrar's Office, a failing grade will be recorded for the affected course(s).

Before completing a class withdrawal form, students are advised to check what impact this may have on their financial aid, athletic eligibility, health insurance benefits, degree requirements, veterans benefits, scholarships, or other areas.

Credit-No-Record

Full-time and part-time students in good academic standing who have earned a minimum of 30 credits (including transfer work) may elect to take one course each semester under Credit/No Record. The option is limited to a total of 6 undergraduate courses or 18 credit hours (excluding cooperative education and internship credits).  Courses in your major or minor field of study may NOT be taken credit-no-record.  Business students are NOT permitted to take any business courses or MATH 131 and 232 for credit-no-record.

Letter grades are not reported for courses taken as credit/no record and therefore the student's semester and cumulative quality point averages are not affected. Credit (CR) is awarded whenever a grade of "C" or better is earned. Credit is not awarded and the course does not appear on the student's grade report or transcript whenever a grade is earned lower than a "C".

The procedures for electing the Credit/No Record Option are as follows:

  1. Print out the PDF fill-in form from the Registrar's Office forms page OR pick up a Credit/No Record Form at the Registrar's Office, 122 Carrier or any department office during the period of Credit-No-Record
  2. The form must be completed by the student and include the signature of his/her assigned academic advisor.
  3. The completed form must then be returned to the Registrar's Office BEFORE the end of the Credit No Record period. 
  4. Students attending Venango Campus may initiate and complete the Credit/No Record Option at the Administrative Office, Frame Hall.

**Once the Credit/No Record Option has been elected, it cannot be rescinded under any circumstances.
Credit/No Record is not available to graduate students or student teachers.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before completing a Credit/No Record form, students are advised to check what impact this may have on their financial aid, athletic eligibility, health insurance benefits, degree requirements, veterans benefits, scholarships, or other areas.

QPA Calculation

The grade point average is calculated by dividing quality points by quality hours.

Quality points - A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, E = 0
        multiply by number of credits course is worth

Quality hours - includes all hours attempted at Clarion for grade
        (no transfer hours and no credit/no record)

Earned Hours - any hours earned with a grade of "D" or above
        (Including transfer hours and credit /no record)

Earned hours and quality hours are equal unless:

  • a student has "E"s against his record - "E"s are not added into earned hours - they are added to quality hours  because they must be used to figure QPA.
  • a student has transfer hours or credit/no record - these are included in earned hours - but are not included in quality hours because they do not figure into QPA.

Example of how to calculate your QPA:



Credit Hours

 Divide the Quality points (21) by the Quality hours (8) to get your QPA (2.625)
