1st or 2nd Academic Dismissal
What happens if I am placed on a 1st or 2nd Academic Dismissal?
Students on their first Academic Dismissal must petition for admission visiting with an Academic Advisor by the posted deadlines. Deadlines will be updated each semester on this page. Petitions can be submitted starting the first day of registration. Students on their first dismissal may submit a petition for Fall, Spring or Summer semesters.
Students with two Academic Dismissals will not be eligible to petition or enroll for a minimum of one 16 week (Fall or Spring) Semester. After one semester, students must submit a typed petition prior to the deadline (see deadlines to the right). Petitions can be submitted starting the first day of registration. Students on their second dismissal may only submit a petition for Fall or Spring semesters. Second dismissal petitions are not accepted for summer semesters.
Students may re-enroll in Good Standing if minimum academic standards have been met at another accredited college or university during the period of dismissal.
How do I submit a Petition?
Students wishing to return after an academic dismissal will need to complete the academic dismissal petition. Petitions will be available on this website prior to the first day of registration. Students will meet with an academic advisor to review their petition and discuss their plan to be successful. A decision on the petition will be made by the academic advisor in this meeting. If the petition is approved, the student will be able to begin registering online once the advising session is completed. Click here to download the petition packet for 1st and 2nd dismissal packet.
What are my responsibilities as a student on 1st or 2nd Academic Dismissal?
Students who wish to be considered for re-admission/ continued enrollment after a 1st or 2nd Academic Dismissal must meet with an Academic Advisor to submit an Academic Dismissal Petition and receive advising.
Students who are approved for re-admission/ continued enrollment must continually earn a semester GPA of 2.0 or above until Good Standing (cumulative GPA of 2.0) is reached in order to remain enrolled.
In addition to the policies above, students may be required to reduce their course loads and/or enroll in a college success course that is designed to teach proven strategies for academic success.
