Under the Texas Academic Fresh Start statute, a student can elect to have any grades earned 10 years or more prior to the Fresh Start application discounted or "erased" from consideration in the student's cumulative GPA.
So, when I applied for Academic Fresh Start in 2010, the semester from hell I had in 1999 (GPA of 0.50, GO ME!) can no longer be considered as part of my academic profile by any Texas graduate or professional schools. From the College For All Texans website...
"Admissions staff for master's, doctoral or other professional degree programs at public universities will consider only your G.P.A. established by the course work you completed after enrolling in Academic Fresh Start, plus any other criteria the school uses in evaluating applicants for admission.
Credits and G.P.A. you earned prior to Academic Fresh Start will not be used to evaluate your application for admission into the postgraduate or professional program.
Please note: Nothing in the law prohibits a public university from applying standard admissions requirements."
Obviously, the LSDAS really doesn't care about my Academic Fresh Start. But when I apply to University of Texas, how does my AFS factor into my LSDAS grade report? Anyone?
