Petition for Reinstatement
Petitions for Spring 2020 are no longer being accepted. Any submitted petitions will be considered for fall 2020 or later.
A student dismissed for the first time must remain out of school at least one regular (fall or spring) semester. During the semester out of school, the student may petition the School of Health and Human Sciences for readmission. Reinstatement decisions are not guaranteed but will be based upon application materials, academic history, and personal circumstances. Students must abide by posted deadlines and submit a completed Petition for Reinstatement form.
A reinstated student is on probationary status and will be required to meet with an advisor. The student will be required to obtain a 2.3 or higher semester GPA their first semester/summer session back and meet any additional academic conditions or be subject to dismissal for one year. Students who are reinstated must register before the first day of classes in the reinstatement term. Students who are reinstated are classified as on probationary status and will remain on probationary status until their IU cumulative GPA is a 2.0 or higher.
A student who fails to meet prescribed reinstatement standards will be dismissed again. A student dismissed for a second time must remain out of school at least two regular semesters (fall and spring), but may petition for readmission during the second semester out of school. Readmission after a second dismissal is extremely rare.
