A grade of W (withdrawn passing, not computed in GPA) or a grade of Y (withdrawn failing, 0 grade points per credit hour) may be assigned in accordance with the course syllabus. Faculty members electing to withdraw students must record the withdrawal through the online system, including last date of attendance and withdrawal code. Students withdrawn for excessive absences may be reinstated only with the approval of the faculty member. Any impact on attendance that is protected by the exercise of students' rights under ADA/504, Title IX, Title VI, or other recognized law or policy do not count as unexcused absences for the purposes of instructor-initiated withdrawals for lack of attendance/participation. Requests for withdrawals should be referred directly to the College of Enrollment. 2.3.7 Academic Renewal Students who are returning to this college after a separation of five (5) years or more from the Maricopa Community College District, may petition for academic renewal. The request must be in writing and submitted to the Admissions and Records Office/ Office of Student Enrollment Services at the college where the grades were earned. Academic renewal at one of the Maricopa Community Colleges does not guarantee that colleges outside the Maricopa Colleges will accept this action. A cceptance of academic renewal is at the discretion of the receiving institution. 1. Prior to petitioning for academic renewal, the student must demonstrate a renewed academic per formance by earning a minimum of t welve (12) credit hours and a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher within Maricopa Colleges af ter reenrollment. 2.

All course work will remain on the student 's permanent academic record, ensuring a true and accurate academic histor y. 4.
