Students who withdraw and want to return to the university after two consecutive terms but less than a year from their withdrawal date, and who are eligible to return, may submit an online Petition for Reinstatement to the Academic Advising Team at least 30 calendar days prior to the first day of the month in which they want to return to their program. If approved, they will be reinstated without academic penalty.
Students who want to return to the university more than a year after their withdrawal date, and who are eligible to return, must follow the regular application process.
