Guidelines for Reinstatement
FINANCIAL AID MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR REINSTATED STUDENTS
Please see a Financial Aid Advisor to discuss a possible Standards of Academic Progress (SAP) Appeal.
Academic Dismissal Policy - Academic dismissal is an involuntary separation imposed upon a student who,
having been previously suspended from the College and readmitted, fails to regain good academic status or
achieve a minimum 2.0 term grade point average (GPA) for each academic term. Academic dismissal requires
the student to stay out of school for one full calendar year to reflect on his/her commitment to education and
to make any necessary changes to facilitate future success. Academic dismissal is noted on the student’s
permanent record. Students readmitted after being academically dismissed will be on an academic probation
and must meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for classes.
Note: Students on academic suspension or dismissal are eligible to enroll in PSAV or avocational courses.
