Academic Appeals

Page address:

Academic Re-evaluation Policy and Procedures: Academic Re-Evaluation is the process of removing all prior grades from future GPA calculation for those students enrolling at MSU after an absence from post-secondary education of at least four years. It provides returning students who have had academic difficulties at an earlier stage of their academic career the opportunity for a "second chance" at academic success in earning a degree.
