Readmission of Former and Academically Suspended or Academically Dismissed Undergraduate Students

An undergraduate student who has not been enrolled for one or more semesters, or who is returning after academic or disciplinary suspension or academic dismissal must apply for readmission. Readmission applications, and the application processing fee, should be submitted no later than the deadline to apply for readmission as published in the academic calendar. A returning student should be aware that enrollment restrictions may be imposed at any time, which may affect his/her readmission.

A student who was eligible to continue at the time of leaving and who has a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 will be:

  1. Considered for readmission upon approval of the student’s academic department and college/school as evidenced by submission of an approved Academic Plan of Action,
  2. Placed on Academic Probation Status for at least one semester, and
  3. Allowed, during the readmission process, to simultaneously seek and execute a change of major. Such a change of major and the student’s readmission must be supported by the student’s new academic department.

A student who was academically suspended will be:

  1. Considered for readmission upon serving the conditions of the academic suspension and receiving approval from the student’s academic department and college/school as evidenced by submission of an Academic Plan of Action,
  2. Placed on Academic Probation after Suspension Status for at least one semester,
  3. Allowed, during the readmission process, to simultaneously seek and execute a change of major. Such a change of major and the student’s readmission must be supported by the student’s new academic department.

A student who was academically dismissed must:

  1. Serve a minimum one year academic dismissal and any other conditions of the dismissal action,
  2. Submit an appeal to the Committee on Admission and Academic Retention in the Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs,
  3. If the Committee on Admission and Academic Retention approves the appeal, the student will be placed on Academic Probation after Dismissal Status for at least one semester,
  4. Gain acceptance into an academic department and major degree program. During the readmission process, a student may simultaneously seek and execute a change of major. Such a change of major, and the student’s appeal and readmission must be supported by the student’s new academic department.

A former student whose attendance at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University was interrupted by the University for disciplinary reasons must also apply to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs for approval to be readmitted. A returning student must be accepted into an academic major degree program; the individual may not be readmitted as an undeclared student.
