Academic Amnesty

Wilmington College has an academic amnesty program called Fresh Start, which gives a former WC student a one-time opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree with forgiveness for past academic performance. While this option may permit a student to be re-admitted into a degree program, for financial aid purposes, there is no such provision. Federal regulations require the institution to always include courses applicable to a student’s major in evaluating a student’s satisfactory academic progress. In most cases, students re-entering WC under the Fresh Start Program, will be ineligible for financial aid funds.
