Academic Fresh Start

The Academic Fresh Start procedure is designed to assist returning students, who meet specific conditions, to have a fresh start in how their previous academic records are applied toward meeting graduation requirements in credit programs leading to a degree, diploma or certificate. Any student who meets the following conditions should contact the Academic Records Office for an application.

  • Academic Fresh Start is available only to students after re-entry to York Technical College following two years' absence. It is the responsibility of the student to apply in writing for Academic Fresh Start within the first two semesters following re-admission. In order to qualify, students applying for Academic Fresh Start must have a cumulative GPA below 2.0 for all course work. Students must also establish a term of progress (2.0 term GPA) before Academic Fresh Start will be applied.
  • Academic Fresh Start applies only to the course work taken prior to the term of re-enrollment. Under this process, all courses previously taken at YTC are removed from the grade-point average calculation but still appear on the student's transcript with the original grades earned. Courses completed with grades of "A", "B", or "C" may still be used to meet program requirements, if applicable; however, grades of "D" may no longer be used. Academic Fresh Start does not apply when determining eligibility for academic honors at York Technical College.
