Academic Restart Policy

The Academic Restart provides students who compiled an unsuccessful academic record with a one-time-only opportunity to reset the Lehigh Carbon Community College GPA and the cumulative credits earned to zero.

Eligibility Criteria

  1. The student has not been enrolled at LCCC for at least four consecutive years.
  2. The student has never been granted academic restart.
  3. Restart must occur within the first year of returning to the college.

The previous record will remain on the transcript and will not be used in the computation of the new GPA. The intent of this policy is a complete restart. No previous courses, regardless of grades, may be counted in the new GPA and will not be counted toward graduation. Interested students may obtain the Academic Restart Application at the Registration/Student Records Office or by downloading it below.
