Students under notice of dismissal from the University are ineligible to return until the lapse of one semester and one summer. Students who wish to be considered for re-admission after the expiration of this time period must submit the Application for Re-admission and a written petition to the Admission Committee, which includes the following:

  1. Explanation of probable reasons for scholastic deficiencies.
  2. Explanation of the manner in which intervening time has been spent.
  3. Reasons why favorable consideration for readmission should be given.
  4. Why/how they will be successful upon return to JCU.

Students who have attended other colleges or universities after dismissal from John Carroll must present official transcripts from all other institutions attended in addition to a completed Transfer Reference Form. This readmission process can take several weeks so petitions for readmission should be submitted at least one month prior to registration.

Students dismissed from the University or those who left on probation must submit their applications for readmission by August 1 for the fall semester or by December 1 for the spring semester.

Students who have been dismissed may not enroll in any divisions or register for courses in any session of the University.

Reinstated students must register for an appropriately reduced course load and earn the quality-point average specified by the committee at the time of reinstatement. Students who fail to meet the requirements set forth by the committee during the semester following reinstatement will be dismissed. In matters of reinstatement, the decisions of the Committee on Admission are final.

Students who have been dismissed a second time may not apply for further reinstatement.
