The advanced courses approved for earning retroactive credits are located in the academic policies of the Kent State University catalog (www.kent.edu/catalog). To apply for retroactive credit, students must submit an Application for Retroactive Credits to the Office of the University Registrar. The following stipulations apply: Students must complete the advanced course at Kent State with a minimum C (2.000) or S (Satisfactory) grade to be eligible for retroactive credit. Courses taken for the pass/fail grade or audit mark will not be accepted for retroactive credit. Students who withdraw from or fail to meet the minimum C or S grade in the advanced course may retake the course and apply for retroactive credit once the minimum C or S grade is achieved and posted. Course credits earned through the retroactive policy are not assigned a letter (A-F) grade. The mark CR will be posted to a student’s transcript for the enrolled term the student applied for the retroactive credit. Retroactive credit will count toward students’ class standing, total credit hours earned for graduation and hours required for graduation honors. Retroactive credit will not count in students’ grade point average (GPA), quality points and residence requirement. Credit earned through exam (e.g., AP, CLEP) or courses transferred from other college-level institutions, tech prep programs or dual enrollment in a high school are not eligible for retroactive credit. Not all courses that offer retroactive credits are available each semester. Retroactive credit is not available for graduate courses. Students may apply for retroactive credit following the posting of the grade at any time before graduation, but no later than the second Sunday of the semester in which they are graduating. A fee per credit hour is charged for processing and posting of the credit on the student’s transcript. Fee will be in effect for credit applied to Fall Semester 2015 or later.
