Sac State is an impacted campus and students who need to re-apply for admission must have completed 60 units and have most lower division General Education (GE) requirements completed (Areas A1, A2, A3, B4 are required). All requirements must be completed by the end of the Spring semester in order to be eligible for Fall reinstatement; summer course work will not be used to determine eligibility.

Students who have been dismissed from Sac State may apply for “Readmission after Dismissal” for each Spring semester.

  • Academically dismissed students must sit out one semester before being eligible for readmission.
  • Students who have been dismissed twice must sit out two years before petitioning for reinstatement.

In order to be eligible for “Readmission after Dismissal” students must have successfully completed GE Areas A1 (Oral Communication), A2 (Written Communication), A3 (Critical Thinking) and B4 (Quantitative Reasoning) with minimum “C-” grades.

Additionally, students applying for “Readmission after Dismissal” must have at least 60 semester units completed to be eligible. 

All requirements must be completed by the preceding Summer to be eligible for Spring readmission

Any student who has not been enrolled at Sac State for two or more semesters will need to re-apply for admission.

Students reinstated after dismissal are limited to 6 – 7 units per semester for the first two semesters they return.
