Adjusted Resident Credit

Any undergraduate student who leaves Waynesburg University for two consecutive terms after having attempted at least 12 semester credits will be given the option of requesting a status equivalent to that of a student admitted as a transfer from another institution.

The following conditions governing eligibility will apply:

  1. The student must have attempted a minimum of 12 semester credits of work and subsequently separated from the University.
  2. The student must have separated from the institution for two consecutive terms. A semester in which the student receives W grades cannot be counted as part of the two-term separation.
  3. Upon return, a full-time student must have attained a 2.00 grade point average for all work attempted in the first semester, or upon completion of the first 12 semester credits, if part-time.
  4. Upon satisfying the above requirements, the student must submit an application for Adjusted Resident Credit, at which time a 2.00 grade point average for all work attempted since his or her return must have been earned.
  5. This option will be extended only once during the student’s career at Waynesburg University. If a student is academically suspended, this policy will be considered to have been extended upon return from such suspension.
  6. Consultation and approval by the appropriate department and approval of Academic Affairs will be required. Once an application is submitted and approved, the student will not be permitted to change status for the purpose of computing the cumulative grade point average or application of credit toward graduation.
  7. All grades received at the University will be part of the individual’s official transcript. However, computation of a new grade point average for graduation and continuance will be based on work performed subsequent to reinstatement.
  8. Under this option: (1) eligible students will receive degree credit only for those courses in which grades of C or better were earned prior to readmission; (2) likewise, hours attempted for courses in which grades of D or F were received prior to readmission will not be considered in computing the student’s new cumulative grade point average, and (3) grade points earned for any course completed prior to readmission will not count in determining the student’s new cumulative grade point average.

Students wishing to avail themselves of this policy may receive procedural information from the Office of the Registrar.
