Rule 39

Undergraduate students are dismissed from the university after the third semester (excluding summer session) in which the cumulative grade point average is below 2.0. Individuals who are dismissed from the university may not enroll in courses at WSU, including online and courses on any WSU campus, for two full academic semesters. Dismissed individuals will also not be able to seek status as a “non-degree seeking student.”

Rule 40. Former students may seek reinstatement after two semesters by completing the academic reinstatement petition process. Former students petitioning for academic reinstatement must, as part of the reinstatement petition process, provide documentation that demonstrates potential for academic success at WSU. If seeking reinstatement after more than two semesters, former students must also apply for readmission to the university through the Office of Admissions. All academic coursework from other institutions completed during dismissed status must be documented and official transcripts submitted to the Office of Admissions.
