Reinstatement

If you are Suspended or Dismissed from the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS), you are not eligible for continued enrollment without successful completion of Summer Session coursework at Rutgers- New Brunswick. You must meet all conditions stipulated and explained in the letter of Suspension or Dismissal. In documented extraordinary circumstances, you may submit an Academic Appeal. Students must be able to demonstrate readiness for successful academic work, the ability to raise their cumulative GPA to graduation level, and a realistic plan for completing degree requirements.


Grace Period Remediation

Your Suspension or Dismissal may be reversed if you can raise your cumulative GPA to the required standard (determined by your class year and number of terms enrolled) by completing course work during the Rutgers- NB  Summer Session immediately following your Suspension or Dismissal, no later than August 17th.

  • If you are able to raise your cumulative GPA sufficiently you will be taken off of the Suspension or Dismissal list but may be placed on Warning or Probation depending on your term GPA from the previous Spring Semester
  • Students subject to Suspension or Dismissal may utilize the Grace Period Remediation option.
  • For students subject to Suspension only: If you believe you will be unable to raise your GPA to the required standard during Summer Session you may decide to pursue the reenrollment option instead of Grace Period Remediation (see Reenrollment below).

“PASS” Probation After Sustained Suspension

If you are subject to Suspension (not Dismissal**) and it is impossible or impractical to complete enough course work during the Summer Session Grace Period to raise your cumulative GPA to the required standard, you may use the “PASS” (Probation After Sustained Suspension) option.

To satisfy this option, you must complete six new degree credits, in two courses during the Rutgers - New Brunswick Summer Session and obtain a term GPA of 2.75 or higher by the end of the third Summer Session.

  • The Suspension and it will remain in your academic file but you will be reinstated for the upcoming academic year.
  • Be aware, you cannot earn new degree credits for any courses that are E-credited or in which you previously earned degree credit, including grades of D that are ineligible for the F/D Repeat Policy and grades of C or higher.
  • If you take courses in pursuit of Grace Period Remediation, they can alternately count toward fulfillment of the “PASS” option.
  • If you choose to enroll in more than six credits of summer coursework, your GPA for all summer coursework must still be at least 2.75.

Conditional Reenrollment

For students applying to return following Academic Suspension in a previous year

Students who either failed to meet the required academic standards in the Summer following their Suspension (not Dismissal**), or who did not attempt to complete coursework, must apply for Summer Conditional Reenrollment.

Conditionally Reenrolled students must complete six new degree credits, in two courses, during the Rutgers - New Brunswick Summer Session and obtain a term GPA of 2.75 or higher by the end of the third Summer Session.

  • Students are guaranteed one opportunity to address their Academic Suspension with Summer Session coursework. After the first attempt, future reenrollment is determined by review of your academic record and the viability of successful degree completion.
  • You must apply for Conditional Reenrollment by the advertised deadlines.
  • Be aware, you cannot earn new degree credits for any courses that are E-credited or in which you previously earned degree credit, including grades of D that are ineligible for the F/D Repeat Policy and grades of C or higher.
  • If you choose to enroll in more than six credits of summer coursework, your GPA for all summer coursework must still be at least 2.75.
  • Registration for future semesters is contingent on success completion of all requirements.

If you are successful in meeting the requirements for Conditional Reenrollment you will be placed on Probation in your next semester of enrollment. In addition, if you then fail to earn a term GPA of 2.00 or higher, SAS reserves the right to rescind your reenrollment and may require you to sit-out the Spring term and apply for Conditional Reenrollment in the following Summer.

** Students subject to Academic Dismissal are not eligible to utilize the PASS (Probation After Sustained Suspension) Option or Conditional Reenrollment except by successful Appeal to the Faculty Committee for Academic Standing.
