Academic Renewal


All state colleges and universities will have the option to implement an academic renewal policy provided it is in compliance with the prescribed guidelines.  This provision allows a student who has had academic trouble in the past and who has been out of higher education for a number of years to recover without penalty and have a fresh start.  Under Academic Renewal, course work taken prior to a date specified by the institution is not counted in the student's retention GPA.


  • Five years have passed since the last semester being renewed and the renewal request.
  • A GPA of 2.0 or higher has been earned on a minimum of twelve hours with no grade lower than a "C" since the semester(s).
  • All official transcripts are on file and have been evaluated.
  • Student is currently enrolled and degree seeking at Tulsa Community College
  • Student has not applied credit hours nor content from renewal terms requested to a previous degree or certificate.
  • Student needs to be informed of of the benefits and limitations of the request for renewal.
  • The courses that have been approved for Academic Renewal  will remain on the transcript, but the courses are not calculated in the TCC Overall GPA.
