Academic Suspension

What Happens if I am Suspended?

  • You apply for reinstatement to return after a full calendar year.
  • If you had documentable extenuating circumstances or made significant progress during your most recent semester, and you have completed a Student Success Plan with University Advising or your college advising office, you may be eligible to return earlier through the Early Reinstatement Process.
  • Financial Aid is on "Suspension"-> After successfully completing the academic reinstatement process, you can appeal this status to try and be eligible for aid. Contact Campus Hub for details specific to your financial aid status (507) 389-1866
