Fresh Start Rule

Students who have not enrolled in credit classes at DCC for a minimum of three consecutive years, and who have Ds, Fs and Ws on their transcript, may apply for the Fresh Start Rule. All grades of D, F and W will be made non-applicable on the student’s transcript. The rule can be used only once. Students are expected to apply prior to completing their first semester returning in order to be eligible. All other requirements for graduation remain in effect. Students apply through the Registrar’s Office.
