Forgiveness Clause | Southwestern Illinois College

The Enrollment Services office may forgive the three lowest grades (D, F) if your cumulative GPA is less than 2.0 when you are readmitted to SWIC after more than a three-year break. You must be enrolled in the current semester. Courses and grades that are forgiven will not be factored in your GPA or applied toward degree and/or certificate requirements. However, the grades will continue to be part of your permanent record. Forgiveness cannot be granted until after two weeks into each semester. To be considered for this option, you must submit a Forgiveness Clause Application to the Enrollment Services office.
