Academic Renewal Policy

 

      Students may apply for Academic Renewal for one semester or one summer session of their academic career at Hawai‘i Community College.  The student’s HawCC GPA will be recalculated to exclude all grades and credits from the renewal semester.  However, this information will appear on the transcript with an Academic Renewal notation.  Academic Renewal may not be applied to courses that have already been used to meet requirements for a

      previously earned degree or certificate.  Academic Renewal at HawCC does not guarantee that other institutions will approve such action.  Academic Renewal does not change the Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress calculation.  Please consult with the Financial Aid office as appropriate.

 

Students who are interested in Academic Renewal must meet the following conditions:

 

  1. The student must complete the Academic Renewal Request Form.  It must be signed by a counselor or an academic advisor.  The completed form must be submitted to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
  2. The student must have a declared major and must be seeking a degree or certificate.
  3. The student must ensure that all non-academic HOLDS are cleared prior to submitting the Academic Renewal Request Form.
  4. If a student has been placed on Academic Dismissal, the student may request Academic Renewal one year after the date of dismissal.
  5.   The student must complete the Academic Renewal process prior to submitting an application for graduation.
