Academic Reinstatement*

After a three-month waiting period, students who are on academic suspension may request permission to be reinstated in the program based on a review of the circumstances and information in the particular student’s case. Students on suspension may request permission to be reinstated in the program from the SGCS Reinstatement Committee. Requests for reinstatement must include a letter addressed to the SGCS Reinstatement Committee that addresses the circumstances that resulted in suspension and a plan of action as to how the student expects to be successful in completing the program.

If the student is granted reinstatement into the program by the SGCS Reinstatement Committee, then the student will once again be placed on probation and be given nine (9) hours to bring their GPA up to a 3.0. The Reinstatement Committee may also provide additional requirements to be met during this probationary period.

After the student attains a 3.0 GPA by the end of this probationary period, the student will once again be placed in good standing and may continue the rest of the program However, if the student does not increase the average to a 3.0 during the probationary period, the student is placed on academic suspension for three (3) months.

If the request for reinstatement is denied, then the student is terminated from the program for a minimum of five (5) years.
