Eliminating Deficiencies

If a student is deficient in credits and/or GPA at the end of the academic year, summer school classes may be used to eliminate the deficiency. No federal financial aid will be provided to help defray summer costs. Summer work need not be completed at ESU, but students should be aware that:

  • Transient clearance must be obtained prior to taking courses elsewhere to ensure that these credits will be accepted at ESU.
  • Courses taken elsewhere will not affect the GPA. If the student’s deficiency is in GPA, taking courses at another institution will not make up that deficiency. The only exception is students participating in the PASSHE Visiting Student program.

In addition, credits received from Advanced Placement Exams, College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests or any other type of prior learning will not be used to satisfy a credit deficiency.
