Overall limit on academic bankruptcy: A student is limited to two semesters of academic bankruptcy in his or her career.
Undergraduate students who have not attended IUS for at least two years, are pursuing their first bachelor’s degree, and are returning to IU Southeast for the fall semester, 1996 or later may request academic bankruptcy. Bankruptcy means that all grades earned during the term(s) in question will not be counted in the calculation of the program GPA. The grades will remain on the student’s official transcript and will count in the IU GPA. Academic Bankruptcy may be requested for no more than two terms of IU Southeast coursework. Two consecutive summer sessions may be considered a single academic term for purposes of this policy. The petition must be submitted during the first semester back at IU Southeast.
This part of the Academic Bankruptcy policy may be invoked only once in a student’s academic career. Academic Bankruptcy Petition forms are available from your academic school or division.
