Determinations

The Dean of Students (DOS) will make a determination regarding reinstatement based on the recommendation provided by CAPS and/or Health Services. Reinstatement is based on the student's compliance with the MLOA requirements and their readiness to manage an academic course load and safely function in our community.

The DOS will notify the student and other necessary University offices in writing of the determination, and if approved, whether any conditions will apply. If reinstatement is denied, the student may appeal the determination.

Step 4 -Complete the Former Student to Re-Enter Form

The Dean of Students shall review the record and any additional information submitted by the student and renders a decision within ten (10) business days of receiving the appeal.
