Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Dismissal/Reinstatement

There are several types of dismissals that may occur at Ohio State. Students who do not meet the expectations of their particular colleges may be dismissed from a program of study. Under these circumstances, it is typical for a student to identify a new major and continue working toward a degree.

If students do not meet the terms of an academic probation, they run the risk of being dismissed from the univeristy completely. Students may be reinstated after an academic dismissal, provided they attend another institution and can demonstrate academic success before seeking readmission.

When students are dismissed for disciplinary reasons, they are typically entitled to an appeals process.  The Student Advocacy Center often consults with students who need assistance with the appeals process through the Office of Student Conduct and the Committee on Acadmic Misconduct.
