Effective Spring 2015, MGA implemented a new Academic Renewal Policy in accordance with the USG Board of Regents Policy 3.5.3. Undergraduate students who are either returning to a USG institution or are transferring to a USG institution may be eligible for Academic Renewal. Academic Renewal for the student signals the initiation of a new grade point average to be used for determining academic standing. This provision allows USG degree-seeking students who earlier experienced academic difficulty (GPA less than 2.50) to make a fresh start and have one final opportunity to earn an associate or bachelor’s degree. A student must be absent 3 years from a regionally accredited institution. For more information on the new policy and to review the form, click Academic Renewal Form. Students may access the form on the Registrar’s webpage under Documents & Forms. For questions, contact Ms. Brenda Hogan, Registrar at 471-2900.
