Frequently Asked Questions
Do all students get a 'new' 16 units of repeats to use under Grade Forgiveness?
No. Prior to Fall 2009, the previous way of tracking forgiveness-type repeat use was to include both your transfer repeats (repeats from other schools), as well as CSUF repeats, up to a maximum of 16 units. Starting with Fall 2009, the method of tracking Grade Forgiveness repeats has been revised so that it no longer includes transfer repeats (repeats from other schools). All courses that you take and repeat at CSUF count in your 16-unit Grade Forgiveness total, no matter what semester you took them.
If your repeat total previously included transfer repeats, your Grade Forgiveness total is now an adjusted number resulting from the removal of transfer repeats. If you did not have any transfer repeats in your repeat total prior to Fall 2009, your total does not need an adjustment since it has always included only repeats for CSUF courses. Therefore, a revised total of utilized Grade Forgiveness units is not going to affect all students, and for those who are affected, it is not an automatic 'new' 16 units.
