SECOND READING

FS 05-32/APC/Ex. READMISSION GUIDELINES

The Faculty Senate recommends adopting the following guidelines for deciding on the readmission of academically dismissed students:

  1. A student applying for readmission who is a freshman or sophomore, and who has not successfully completed the Area A (Basic Subjects) and the Area B4 (quantitative reasoning) GE requirements is denied readmission and advised to complete these and other specified lower division GE and/or major requirements at a community college, and establish a pattern of success as a student, before applying for readmission.
     

  2. Upper division students who have been dismissed for the first time will typically be readmitted, assuming an application packet has been submitted which includes evidence that would lead the committee to believe that the past pattern of failure will not be repeated (see the attachment readmission packet materials).
     

  3. Upon readmission, the student will enter into a contract under the auspices of the Readmission Committee, which will remain in force until the student achieves good standing status. The contract will include at a minimum the following:

  1. The student is limited to enrolling in no more than six (6) units [or seven (7) units if one of the courses requires four (4) units]. This six-unit limit is imposed for two semesters.*
     

  2. The student must earn a C or better in all classes (no C- grades) taken during the first two semesters. If the student fails to satisfy this condition, the student will be dismissed again.
     

  3. The student should meet with his/her adviser at least twice during the semester to discuss his/her academic progress and any problems that may be encountered.

* Once readmitted and after the first two semesters, the student may enroll in more than six (6) units. Typically, poor time management is a significant reason for student dismissals. Students should therefore be advised that repeating past patterns of taking too many courses while also having to deal with jobs, family matters, and other commitments could again affect academic performance and lead to a second dismissal.

  1. A student academically dismissed for a second time will not be considered for readmission for a period of at least two years.

Rationale is provided at Attachment A and a chart that summarizes the categories of academic action and explains how a student becomes academically dismissed with the option of petitioning for readmission after a required stop-out period is provided at Attachment A-1.
