Steps for Re-admission
Students new to Suspension are ineligible to enroll in credit courses in the next session of enrollment (Fall, Spring or Summer semesters) and are required to sit out for one long semester or both Summer sessions from the end of the semester in which they went on suspension. Upon their return they will need to apply for re-admission by following the steps below.
Students new to Dismissal or Indefinite Dismissal are required to sit out for one year from the end of the semester in which they went on Dismissal or Indefinite Dismissal. Upon their return, they will need to apply for re-admission by following the steps below. Students with a current AV block on their Advising Report must see their assigned advisor.
Students on Probation 2 or Probation 3 with no current Richland advisor’s AV block on their Advising Report must also follow the steps below.
