Enrollment Information

Academic Renewal

Handout: Academic Renewal

Students who are returning after a separation of five (5) years or more from the Maricopa Community College District, may petition for academic renewal. The request must be in writing and submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records at the college where the grades were earned.

Academic renewal at one of the Maricopa Community Colleges does not guarantee that colleges outside the Maricopa Colleges will accept this action. Acceptance of academic renewal is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

  1. Prior to petitioning for academic renewal, the student must demonstrate renewed academic performance by earning a minimum of twelve (12) credit hours and a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher within Maricopa Colleges after reenrollment.
  2. Upon approval, all courses taken prior to reenrollment with a grade of A, B, C, D, F, and Y will be annotated as academic renewal on the students permanent record. All course work affected by academic renewal will not be computed in the grade point average. Courses with grades A, B, or C will have the associated credit hours counted in the total credit hours earned. Such credit will not be computed in the grade point average.
  3. All course work will remain on the students permanent academic record, ensuring a true and accurate academic history.
  4. The academic renewal policy may be used only once at each college and cannot be revoked once approved.
  5. Students who have been granted Academic Renewal must also meet the Financial Aid Standards of Academic Progress if they wish to receive financial aid.
