Academic or Progress Dismissal

If you are on Academic or Progress Dismissal, you cannot take classes the following term. You can apply for readmission after one regular semester of non-attendance. In order to do this, you must see an academic advisor or counselor to be reinstated.

*Dismissal status can be appealed due to extenuating circumstances. The process to appeal is on the Admissions webpage.
