When to apply for reinstatement?

To be reinstated you must contact the school by the following deadlines:

  • October 15 for the spring semester
  • March 15 for the summer session

If you are reinstated, you will be required to meet with an academic advisor. You must register for classes before the first day of classes of the reinstatement term.

You will be on a probationary status until your IU cumulative GPA is a 2.0 or higher. Also, you will be required to obtain a grade point average of 2.3 or higher during the first semester or summer session back.

If you, do not achieve these standards you will be subject to a second dismissal. If you are dismissed for a second time, you must remain out of school for two full semesters. This does not include summer sessions. After your second dismissal, you may petition for readmission during the second semester out of school.
