Eligible students can use the Extended-X policy to remove a grade from the calculation of their cumulative GPA.
If the original class that you plan to repeat was completed in Fall 2021 or later, then the previous letter grade will be fully replaced with an "X" and your previous grade will not appear on your transcript.
If the original class that you plan to repeat was completed prior to Fall 2021, then the original grade will not be fully removed from the transcript; instead, an X is placed next to the initial grade on the transcript to indicate you are applying this policy.
If you are considering retaking a course and Xing a previous grade, consult with your assigned Students in Transition Academic Advisor prior to enrolling.
A special note to students on academic probation: It is important that you file the Extended X petition before the end of the semester as it could affect your academic standing.
You may retake any course in which you earned a grade lower than an "A" and apply the Extended-X policy to that course.
You may apply the Extended-X policy to no more than three courses, totaling no more than 10 credit hours.
You may apply the Extended-X policy only once to any given course.
To submit a petition, either go to the OVPUE Records Office in Wells Library, room 002 (Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or submit the electronic form (CAS authentication required). There are instructions on how to fill out and submit the form on the application, so please read them carefully. However, if you have any questions about the form or the Extended-X policy in general, you can contact OVPUE Records at 812-855-7797 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must be currently enrolled in the course before you can submit a petition to apply the Extended-X Policy to it.
An X petition can be submitted any time before you graduate. However, we recommend that you submit your X petition before the end of the semester you are re-taking the course. If you've already completed the course for the second time and neglected to file an X petition, you may file your petition now.
