Academic Bankruptcy Policy

Students who have not enrolled in any accredited college or university for five or more consecutive calendar years immediately prior to admission to Texas State may, at the time they apply for admission, request permission to declare academic bankruptcy. Under this policy all college-level work done at an earlier date is eliminated from computation of the GPA and none of it is applied toward a degree at Texas State. Such work, however, will not be removed from the student’s records. Those granted academic bankruptcy are admitted on academic probation.
