Academic Forgiveness Policy
Bellevue College allows enrolled students pursuing a degree or certificate to petition for academic forgiveness as a one-time irreversible option for which students petition at the time of graduation. Students select a quarter on their transcript from which point all grades for all quarters preceding the selected quarter will be forgiven and excluded from their BC transcript cumulative GPA.

Courses which are forgiven cannot be used to meet pre-requisites, degree or certificate requirements. Students should be aware that other colleges and universities may include forgiven courses and/or grades in their eligibility for admission or graduation.

In those cases where students have a complaint concerning the college rules and regulations and no clear avenue of appeal is stated, students are encouraged to submit their concerns to the Executive Dean of Instruction for academic matters or to the Vice President of Student Services for nonacademic matters. The respective offices will seek the necessary means for providing a student with a decision.

Bellevue College reserves the right to change any provisions or requirements appearing in the catalog or quarterly schedule at any time and to add or withdraw courses without prior notification.

The catalog and quarterly schedule are published for informational purposes only. Every possible effort is made to ensure accuracy at the time of publication. However, the provisions of the catalog and quarterly schedule are not to be regarded as an irrevocable contract between the student and the college.

Students who wish to pursue academic forgiveness should meet with a counselor.
