58-80 Re-enrollment from Warning, Suspension, and Dismissal

Students who withdrew or left the University who were not in good standing, as a result of either academic or nonacademic warning, suspension, or dismissal, may request re-enrollment to the University. Action for approval or denial of a request for re-enrollment is covered under one of the following cases:

1. If the student is requesting re-enrollment when last enrolled the student’s cumulative grade point average was less than 2.00 or higher, depending on program requirements*, then to be considered for re-enrollment, students must submit an academic recovery plan and a statement from an academic adviser.

If re-enrollment is approved, the student will remain in academic warning status. Colleges may request the Registrar’s Office to place a registration hold after the re-enrollment request has been approved to ensure that proper advising occurs. A registration hold will prevent the student from registering for courses but will not impede the re-enrollment process.
