Reinstatement for Extended Learning Students

Once a student is disqualified, s/he may petition to be reinstated to the University. Reinstatement must be based upon evidence that the causes of previous low achievement have been removed. Reinstatement will be approved only if the student is able to provide compelling evidence of her/his ability to complete the degree. Petitions are reviewed by the Reinstatement Committee.

Students may be required a mandatory out one semester immediately following the semester they were Academically Disqualified from CSUSM  . These students are eligible to petition for reinstatement after serving their out one semester. Please read the Reinstatement Guide for more information.

Academically Disqualified students who petition for reinstatement and have not attended CSUSM for two or more regular semesters must also re-apply for admission to the University, meeting all deadlines and requirements for admission eligibility. Recognizing students may want to take courses while they await re-entry, students may appeal to take courses through Open University.  Appeals to take courses through Open University must be submitted in writing to el@csusm.edu

Reinstated students may only resume their academic career at CSUSM if approved for reinstatement and approved for re-entry/admission to the University.

It is the student's responsibility to understand CSUSM's Academic Reinstatement guidelines, requirements and process. Please read the EL Reinstatement Guide thoroughly prior to submitting a Petition for Reinstatement.

Student Progress Reports are strongly encouraged and help the Reinstatement Committee make an informed decision on your petition. After working with your current instructor(s) to fill out the EL Student Progress Report, you may upload it with your Reinstatement Petition Form, or you may upload and submit the progress report using the Additional Documentation Submission.
