REINSTATEMENT

For Engineering students who have been suspended from the College of Engineering (not the University):

  • Apply for reinstatement to the college when the GPA requirements as stated in “College of Engineering Probation & Suspension” have been achieved.
  • Certain criteria and deadlines apply.
  • Contact the College of Engineering Records Office for more information.

For students suspended from the University and want to return to engineering:

  • Must remain out of the University for at least two semester ( a summer session counts as one semester).
  • Students academically suspended are not directly reinstated into the College of Engineering, but must enroll in another college until they are off probation.
  • Certain deadlines and criteria apply.
  • If approved for reinstatement, students must then also apply for readmission to the University.
