Grade Forgiveness is the opportunity to retake a course and earn a grade that will be substituted for the previous grade in the UCF and overall cumulative grade point averages. The use of Grade Forgiveness is limited to two (2) times during a student's undergraduate career. Grade Forgiveness attempts can only be used on courses taken and repeated at UCF. The deadline to apply for grade forgiveness is the withdrawal deadline during the semester that the class is repeated. Students can apply for Grade Forgiveness on myUCF through the Student Self Service Center.
