Fresh Start

Fresh Start at IUI

This is an update to the policy formerly known as Grade Forgiveness.

IU Indianapolis has created a Fresh Start through Academic Renewal policy to encourage capable, mature undergraduate students to return to IU Indianapolis if they did poorly during an earlier attempt at an Indiana University education. 

Fresh Start is available to all IU Indianapolis undergraduate, degree-seeking students who meet the criteria, regardless of the unit of enrollment.  Fresh Start is available for courses taken at any Indiana University campus and may be applicable to certain Purdue enrollment.

Application of the Fresh Start policy is intended to assist students in successfully earning a bachelor's degree from IU Indianapolis by affecting their GPA.  Advisors can see that Fresh Start has been applied on the student program transcript under each term in which it was approved.

Fresh Start through Academic Renewal requests must be submitted by the Dean's designee for the student's current school of enrollment.  If you are a Dean's designee, and you cannot access the form below, please contact the Office of the Registrar.
