SPECIAL RE-ENROLLMENT CIRCUMSTANCES
Academic Drop: The student must first complete the appropriate reinstatement process as well as activate the re-enrollment procedure (see Reinstatement).
Disciplinary Suspension, Indefinite Expulsion, or Expulsion: The student must contact the Office of Student Conduct, 814-863-0342, at University Park or the Office of Student Affairs at other Penn State campuses.
Holds: If a hold has been placed on a student's record, it must be cleared before registration can be processed (see Holds on Student Registration).
Reapplying to a Minor: Students admitted to a minor who interrupt continuous enrollment must reapply to the minor when re-enrolling in the University if the minor is still desired (see Minors for Baccalaureate Candidates).
Re-enrollment after a Medical Withdrawal: In some cases, when there is significant concern about individual or community health, the director of the University Health Services can require students who have processed a medical withdrawal to obtain medical clearance for re-enrollment (see Withdrawal).
Military Re-enrollment is appropriate for students who processed a military withdrawal. The student resuming studies after discharge or being placed on inactive duty is assured direct access to the same major and campus he/she was assigned prior to withdrawing. The re-enrollment fee is waived. Students on military leave should direct questions about their status and/or procedures for re-entry to the Office of Veteran's Programs, 325 Boucke Building, 814-863-0465.
Re-enrollment with Less than a 2.00 Cumulative Grade-Point Average: Students whose performance is below satisfactory but who have not been dropped from the University (see Unsatisfactory Scholarship) may request an evaluation for re-enrollment into the Division of Undergraduate Studies (DUS). The student should contact DUS at the desired location: University Park or another Penn State campus. An evaluation does not guarantee that re-enrollment will be granted (see DUS).
Re-enrollment into the Division of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) with 60 Credits (or more): The college that the student hopes to enter must support this action. The student seeking re-enrollment into DUS must present to DUS a letter of support from the appropriate college (see DUS).
Re-enrollment with Advanced Standing: If the student has attended another college or university, a review of the student's official transcript may be required prior to re-enrollment. The transcript of credits earned at the other institution must be sent to Penn State's director of admissions so that a decision can be made on addition of credit. If the student is re-enrolled and the transfer credits are acceptable, a recording fee is assessed and the credits are added to the student's permanent record (see Transfer Credit).
Re-enrollment with Academic Renewal is appropriate for a student desiring re-enrollment after an interruption of enrollment of no fewer than four calendar years if the student's cumulative grade-point average is below a 2.00 (see Academic Renewal).
Re-enrollment for Graduation: After the student's re-enrollment is approved, he/she must contact the appropriate dean's office to ensure that graduation requirements have been met and that he/she will be added to the graduation list.
The University may make changes in policies,
procedures, educational offerings, and requirements at any time. Please
consult a Penn State academic adviser for more detailed information.
