If you have been readmitted to Gateway Community & Technical College after having
remained out of a KCTCS college for a period of two or more years and if you have
completed at least 12 credit hours in non-developmental and non-remedial courses with
a grade point average of 2.0 or better after readmission, you may choose to have your
previous KCTCS course work removed from the computation of the grade point average.
This procedure is commonly called "academic bankruptcy."
A student who declares academic bankruptcy will continue to receive credit for those courses in which a grade of A, B, C, D, or P was earned prior to readmission without including those grades in the GPA computation.
