What is the Academic Forgiveness Policy and how do I determine if I should use it for a class?

The Academic Forgiveness Policy may be used to remove a maximum of two (8 total hours) undergraduate course grades from the computation of your GPA. The course must be repeated at MSU. All courses for which a grade has been assigned will remain on the transcript. However, the notation will appear that the work is not included in the GPA. The complete policy can be found here.
