Academic Suspension

A student suspended for academic reasons is no longer a degree candidate.

A suspended student may, however, enroll in up to nine credits per semester as a non-matriculant. A student may reapply for admission when his/her cumulative grade-point average reaches the
minimum university, department or school admission criterion. Eligibility for readmission does not automatically lead to readmission to Western but only to consideration for readmission by the director of Undergraduate Admissions.

Credits earned at other institutions are not used to raise a student’s cumulative grade point average. Students who, for academic reasons, are suspended a second time will be dismissed and are not eligible for readmission except under the Fresh Start Policy.
