The Academic Standards and Policy Committee reviews appeals for readmission by students who have been suspended for not meeting the terms of their academic probation. Appeals for readmission after a suspension notice has been sent to students must be accompanied by 1 evidence that factors contributing to the difficulty have been altered and that there is every reason to assume successful continuation of studies. On the first occasion of an academic suspension, students are readmitted if they agree to the conditions of the academic
contract. Students may not continue on academic contract for two consecutive semesters, nor may they be on academic contract for more than three semesters over the course of their enrollment.
Credits earned at other institutions during the period of suspension may not be applied toward graduation from UMC unless permission to earn such credit is granted in advance by the Academic Standards and Policy Committee.
Students previously suspended are readmitted on probationary status. Continued enrollment depends on satisfactory performance.
- NOTE: Students who have been suspended from UMC and are petitioning to be re-admitted on contract for the second or third time must meet individually with Student Support Services or University counseling staff for assistance in identifying reasons for academic difficulties and developing a plan for corrective action prior to presenting their appeal to the Academic Standards and Policy Committee.
- NOTE: For purposes of determining eligibility of students to receive state/federal financial aid and determine eligibility of students to represent the University in official events and activities the following policy statement shall apply: students on academic probation shall be considered to be making satisfactory academic progress. Suspended students readmitted under the terms of the academic contract shall NOT be considered to be making satisfactory academic progress.
