Policy application guidelines:
When students must repeat older credit that is on their academic records (by transfer or earned at CSU) due to a time limitation policy, only the new credit will be used in the calculation of their grade point ratios.
The age of credit is established from the date classes begin for the term a student attends after being admitted or readmitted. The age of credit will be recalculated if the student leaves CSU for at least two consecutive semesters (Fall and Spring). If a student leaves the University for two consecutive semesters and later returns, the student is subject to the Undergraduate Catalog and regulations in effect at the time of matriculation.
By action of the Faculty Senate, April 12, 1999.
