Reinstatement Procedures

Students who were dropped from a class and wish to be reinstated must meet the following criteria:
  • Student must have been registered in the course prior to the add/drop date and subsequently dropped due to non-payment, non-attendance, or other process.
  • Student requests reinstatement via email to the appropriate department chair (see Reinstatement Instructions). 
    • If dropped from the class for non-payment, approval from the department chair is required for reinstatement.
    • If dropped from the class by the instructor for Non-Attendance, approval from the department chair is required for reinstatement. The department chair will verify attendance with the instructor before approval is granted.
    • Administrative or college error documented by the director/department that caused the error are to contact the department chair on behalf of the student to request reinstatement.
    • Extenuating circumstances approved by the Vice President of Student Services or Dean of Enrollment Management will be processed. Documentation is required.
  • Student are advised to have Financial Aid Office, the Student Accounts Office, or the Veteran’s Center confirm eligibility or deferment of funds to ensure the course will not be dropped for non-payment once reinstated.
  • Reinstatement may not be processed after the midpoint of the following semester (I-grade deadline published in the catalog) in which the course was taken.
  • If reinstatement is after grades have been submitted, each instructor must also deliver a memo to the Records Office (not via the student) that indicates what grade the student should receive. 
  • The reinstatement email approving the reinstatement from the department chair must be sent to no later than five (5) business days from the drop date.

Reinstatement After "W1" Grade

Any student that is not attending for more than two weeks prior to the Last Day to Withdraw on the Academic Calendar may be reported for non-attendance. If you are reported as not attending, you will be administratively withdrawn from the course and will receive a grade of “W1” on their transcript. This counts as an attempt but does not affect your GPA. You may request to continue in the class. Because an administrative withdrawal is conducted based on absences from a class, you are strongly encouraged to discuss returning to class with your instructor before you request reinstatement with an Academic Advisor. Your instructors are not required to allow you to make up missed assignments. Once reinstated, you will earn a grade at the end of the term and will not be permitted to withdraw. The deadline to request a reinstatement of this kind is before the end of the term and sub-session in which the course is taken.
