F-forgiveness for a Fresh Start

Past "F" grades can be forgiven — removed from GPA calculations — for students in the BIS and RBA programs.

We believe in second chances. The Bachelor of Integrated Studies (B.I.S.) and Regents Bachelor of Arts (R.B.A.) degrees offer the unique opportunity for F-forgiveness. This includes grades earned at WVU as well as grades transferred from another institution.
