I will be updating everyone. @Tiese Scott I have the same grades. this is straight from the handbook they included on their appeal email.
Repeating/Withdrawing from Prerequisite Courses: Applicants may have two (2) attempts per prerequisite course after 1997 on their academic record without being penalized. See below Florida statute regarding repeating courses. After two attempts, the following penalties apply:
Subtract 0.2 from the prerequisite GPA for each course attempted a 3rd time
Subtract 0.6 from the prerequisite GPA for each course attempted a 4th time
Subtract 1.2 from the prerequisite GPA for each course attempted a 5th time
Subtract 2.4 from the prerequisite GPA for each course attempted a 6th time
Withdrawals, Academic Withdrawals, and other Non-Calculated Grades are Considered Attempts.
State of Florida statute (Specific Authority 1001.02(1) FS; Law Implemented 1001.02(9) FS. History – New 8-13-96, Amended 8-17-98, 1-23-00, and 7-20-04 through the Florida Department of Education, Community Colleges, Withdrawal and Forgiveness Rule 6A-14.0301) prohibits HCC from allowing a student to retake a course when the student has taken the course previously and received a “C” or higher grade. HCC will also transfer in a course from another institution, but if the student has taken that course before and received a grade of “C” or higher, the more recent grade will not be used in any grade point calculation.
-In the event of two or more eligible college-level mathematics, chemistry, or physics courses, the course with the highest grade will be used to calculate the GPA of required prerequisite courses.
-If an applicant has transferred credit from another institution and the number of credits is different from the HCC credit, the GPA calculation for admission only will be based upon the HCC credit hours.
