*The Academic Probation and Dismissal policy is listed in the University Catalog and was ratified by the full faculty.
Reinstatement is not automatic, but each case is reviewed on an individual basis. If you have been academically dismissed, you may appeal the dismissal by submitting an essay to the Registrar, Dr. Cliff Dorne, at email@example.com. This must be done before the beginning of the semester for which you are appealing to be readmitted, the earlier, the better. The Academic Dismissal Committee will not consider any appeal that is submitted once classes begin for the semester intended by the appeal.
The essay must indicate your plan concerning the changes that you intend to make with respect to life circumstances and/or behavior if readmitted to the University. The essay should reflect your personal responsibility for your academic performance. If you are including any rational for academic performance that involves illness, disability, or injury, you must include official documentation from the doctor or healthcare provider on letterhead with signature and office contact information.
Once you have submitted the essay to the Registrar, he will place the case on the agenda of the University Academic Dismissal Committee. They will review the information, including the academic records and receive input from the relevant Dean, and render a ruling with instructions subsequently conveyed to you by email.
After a student successfully appeals and is granted permission to come back, all students will be placed on probation. Students will continue to be on probation until they have successfully met the GPA criteria listed in the chart above (Is there a way to be removed from probation status?).
If your federal financial aid was taken away (referred to as Satisfactory Academic Policy or SAP), this may be appealed in the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid as well to attempt to reinstate the aid, but only after the Academic Dismissal Committee rules in favor of readmission to the university.
