For 1st and 2nd dismissals: Please print out and bring completed, typed dismissal petition along with the required reflection statement with you to visit with a Counselor/Advisor.  Counselor/ Advisors see students on a walk in basis. Students who sign in without their completed petition packet (including typed reflection statement) will be asked to return with the completed packet on a different day.

For 3rd or permanent dismissal students: Petitions are reviewed by a committee. Please submit your completed petition along with the required reflection statement by emailing the Dean of Arts and Sciences at or the Dean of Professional and Technical education at depending on your Academic major. 

If you are on continued academic probation following an Academic Dismissal, you are required to submit a progress report to a counselor/advisor. These should be submitted halfway through the semester (between weeks 8 and 10). Students must submit a progress report to be eligible for early registration.  A PR must be turned in prior to the start of registration for the following semester.  Progress Reports will not be accepted after registration begins. Students who have not turned in the required PR prior to the start of registration will not be eligible to register until final grades have been posted.
