A student dismissed from the School of Library and Information Science due to academic deficiencies is permitted to request readmission to the School and, if readmitted, to resume his/her studies after a lapse of one calendar year from the time of dismissal.
Students dismissed from the SLIS for violations of the Student Code of Conduct are not eligible for readmission.
Readmitted students must adhere to their original time limitation for completing all degree/certificate requirements. Any credit-bearing courses a dismissed student may take elsewhere during whatever period of dismissal will not count towards any SLIS degree or certificate.
To request readmission, the dismissed student submits a letter to the SLIS Associate Dean (email attachment preferred) approximately one month prior to the semester in which the student intends to resume his/her studies:
- outlining the reasons for his/her poor performance.
- explaining how the student intends to ensure he/she will succeed upon readmission.
In order to receive his/her degree or certificate, a readmitted student must remain in good academic standing each term after readmission. If the readmitted student fails to maintain good academic standing, he/she will be permanently dismissed.
