Academic Clemency

  • It is the policy of UMES to allow undergraduate students returning to the campus after a separation of at least five years to petition for the removal of a limited number of unsatisfactory or failing grades earned previously at the Eastern Shore Campus. Contact your Department Chair immediately after being readmitted or reinstated since you must file your petition prior to the first day of classes of your first semester back on campus.  To ensure prompt review of your petition, apply EARLY for readmission or reinstatement so that you will have ample time to select courses and register.

    Courses which are excluded will be identified on your transcript by the notation, "Academic Clemency."
