Grade Exclusion for Fall 2016 is now closed. It will reopen February 2, 2017
Students enrolled at UT Arlington for the first time PRIOR to Fall 2013 are eligible to utilize the grade exclusion policy.
Students have to be enrolled on Census Date to file a grade exclusion, and all grade exclusion requests submitted during the term must be submitted by the last day to drop a course. See academic calendar for Census Date and Last Drop Date.
Upon receiving a D or F in a course, a student may file a request with the Office of Admissions, Records and Registration for grade exclusion. The grade exclusion policy is subject to the following conditions:
Enrollment on Census Date: You must be enrolled at UT Arlington on Census Day of the term in which your grade exclusion request is processed.
Request Filed Before Last Day to Drop of Current Term:UT Arlington will process grade exclusion requests that are submitted online by 5:00 pm CST on or by the last day to drop of the current term, as part of the grading and standing process for that term. The grade exclusion site will be unavailable from the last drop date of the term until the day after Census Date for the next term (Spring, Fall and Summer I). Students must be registered at UT Arlington on Census Date for the term in which their grade exclusion request is processed.
Work with your academic advisor to determine eligibility and impact on the catalog under which you will be governed: Students who entered UT Arlington for the first time from Fall 2006 through Summer 2013 are eligible to utilize the grade exclusion policy. If you began your college career at UT Arlington before Fall 2006, you may discuss the possibility of advancing to a catalog from the 2006-2007 catalog year through the 2012-2013 catalog year, to be eligible for grade exclusion. This means that you must adhere to all the policies of that undergraduate catalog, and you must be able to graduate within no more than eight years of that catalog year. If you entered UT Arlington Fall 2013 or thereafter, you are not eligible for grade exclusion. You may be eligible for grade forgiveness. Please check with your academic advisor if you have any questions regarding your degree plan requirements and/or the catalog under which you are governed.
Processing time: Processing your Grade Exclusion requests in the academic department involves several levels of review, so it is not possible to give you an accurate response time. However all Grade Exclusion requests, if approved, will be processed by final semester grade posting. All correspondence regarding this matter will be sent to your UTA email account. If you have not activated your UTA email account, contact the OIT Help Desk.
Before proceeding, you must acknowledge that you have reviewed the material above and that you have met with your academic advisor and all of the appropriate departments.
