Fresh Start

Fresh Start Policy:
Students returning from a period of absence from MSU Denver may request that credit and grades from designated semesters previously attempted at MSU Denver not be calculated in the GPA or total earned hours. If a “Fresh Start” is approved, all courses from designated semesters will appear on the official academic record but will be annotated to indicate they do not count for academic credit or GPA calculation. Fresh Start will be granted once, for a period of at least one full semester, with a maximum of 54 credit hours, under the following conditions:

• The student must not have been enrolled at MSU Denver for at least three (3) consecutive years (9 semesters).
• This policy applies to designated semesters the student earned a GPA of 2.0 or below.
• Designated courses have not been applied to the completion of an MSU Denver degree or certificate.
• The student is in good financial standing with MSU Denver at the time of this of application.
• The Fresh Start policy may only be used once in a student’s entire MSU Denver career.
• An approved Fresh Start shall not be reversed.
• Must declare a certificate or major and work with an academic advisor to complete the application.

The course chosen to exclude from GPA calculation will be factored into Satisfactory Academic Progress evaluation with the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. Contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for more information.
