I mean, I spent my first few years of college goofing off. I took a bunch of courses in a wide variety of fields, and now I can't even apply for a major without being denied. Has anyone ever tried this before? Starting college over with a clean slate?

resist.....any...political...Oh, sorry.. lol..

As I understand it to my undergraduate program and what I'm watching happen with students around me, the rules of the student financial aid program changed last summer and became downright unforgiving about GPA issues falling below academic standards. It's a hard way now if someone isn't 100% serious as well as committed to a major from the start as I'm gathering regarding many changes.

I happened to be in the hall and heard a student from the state university telling an instructor at my college that aid was dropped by the new rules on her just a bit short of her degree there. That hurt, by the sound of it. You might want to spend a little bit on one of the academic adviser types who do this for a living these days if you can't find what you need on the net? Just an idea from what I pick up around school.

You're going to have to
a. Retake the courses you failed so that they are no longer effecting your GPA.
or
b. Take other courses to raise your GPA.

Best method is retake what you failed. The low grade is replaced with the new one. You don't just get a clean slate, you have to prove you deserve it. Why people think they should have an easy way out of their mistakes is beyond me.

Why does it matter why you got an "F"? I am just curious.

You either learned the material, and demonstrated it by passing all of the course requirements...or you didn't. If you didn't you need to retake the course. Sympathy "A"'s are not going to help you to excel later in life - or even later in your course of study.

More like I got an A or B on all the material, tests, quiz's, and finals... and got failed for being 5 min late or using the bathroom or having my spine broken and not having medical insurance that covered that, or having my tendons in my knees torn and not having medical, or having both my arms broken and not having medical, or getting hit by a car... do you see where this is going?

That sounds like a significant difference from goofing off. Which was it?

I got the # kicked out of me a couple of times before I declared a major. Broke my god-damn body in lord knows how many places, and couldn't afford the doctors... and couldn't exactly get around too much. So my parents kicked me out of the house for being a pussy. Within two-weeks I framed a two-story house with one other guy in two-months for $200 so I could get groceries as SNAP was out of the question as my parents still claimed me as a dependent. Yes, you can move with that kind of damage, yes it hurts, no you wont get a good heal. Oh yeah about five months after that, I also got my right clavicle broken by some guy walking down the street at a block party. Got kicked out of my house by my parents again (and never got FAFSA as they withheld information,) at that time for not "manning it up" and a year after that, when I had pretty much healed... I got a gnarly blood infection from rust and fertilizer, i.e. tetanus and fish-#, from gardening and tearing down a shed. When I tried joining the marines, I got hit by a car. My parents freaked and tried to have me institutionalized and pulled me out of classes half-way through the semester = yet another failed semester of classes. Still think I'm a #-head? *snip*. What the hell is up with you people being unable to READ?! Goofing off taking a bunch of different courses isn't the same as Goofing off going skiing. 'Goofing off' as in taking a couple of years to find my passion in college. 'Goofing off' as in acting like a goof. Now? I'm dealing with the effects of 'Bone-stepping' where your bone was broken, and healed fast, but didn't heal in the correct position. I've got that in my left fibula and right clavicle and have a subluxated or badly-healed c-7 vertebrae. Lord if I know, I don't have x-ray vision. So that's that, and I'm about ready to pop if an 'advisor' who hasn't dealt with real-life outside the office tries to tell me I'm 'not trying' or 'not qualified.' Oh, and the kings stinking son fired me! And thank you so much for bringing up such a painful subject. While you're at it, why don't you give me a nice paper cut, and pour lemon
juice on it.
*edit* and 'first few years in college' as in I was only in college for 3 years.

The records are already confidential. You have to agree to release them to anybody. If you're talking about enrolling in the same college you are screwed. If you want to try another college, and lie and say you've never attended before, it will probably work, as long as you don't need Federal Financial Aid. If you are trying to use Financial Aid, then you have to be accountable to your own record. Why should we use public funds to pay for a bad student?

You don't need the courts, you just need to hunker down, become a good student on your own dime for a semester or two, and then your doors will be open again.

Why does it matter? If you were unable to complete the class you should have withdrawn and got a W. For whatever reason you did not. Either what happened is excuseable, and you failed to rectify the situation at the proper time, or it is not. Either way you are responsible. Go back and retake the classes and pass them.

If you were too busy and didnt go to class and failed, your fault. If you got put in the hospital and couldn't attend class and you left rather than rectifying the situation believing you would never return, your fault. Why is not relevant, you wanted to know how to fix it, I told you how. Retake your courses.

so far I count 0 people with critical reasoning skills, and a whole bunch of people who claim to 'deny ignorance' that, for all intents and purposes, are working to maintain status quo. No matter, I'm sure the 'Sovereignty' guys have tried this already. I'll just ask some of them.

Uh then you withdraw from your classes. Some things college just can't teach. Like common sense, personal responsibility and humility.

Yes because accepting responsibility for your actions, that's plain crazy. You try what the soverignty guys say. You've been given the answer, do it or don't do it, really only hurts you.

Allow me to be more eloquent in explaining this time, I think your story has some fictitious parts, 5 mins late, using the bathroom and then a torrent of bodily injuries, framed a 2 story house in two months and only made 200 dollars? I ask which is it?

You can't start college with a clean slate, as it's been said before your best bet is to go to a community college, get your GPA up and try again at a university. That's how it is in life. No ignorance to deny.

That doesn't sound like you were goofing off. That sounds like you were dealing with a lot of things outside of college that was affecting your ability to focus in college. How much of this was going on when you were gong to school? Maybe you could write a letter asking for some things to be waved?
