Academic Suspension Process
Students who have an EOU term and cumulative GPA below 2.000 while on Academic Probation will be placed on Academic Suspension. Suspended (and, hence, “former”) students are denied all student privileges including, but not limited to, registration, class attendance, financial aid and residence in EOU housing. Students who petition for reinstatement should meet with an adviser and attend classes until their case is resolved with the Academic Standards Committee. There are exceptions for Summer Session registration, see Summer Session, Academic Standards Procedures.
Petition for reinstatement from Academic Suspension
Once grades are posted at the end of each term students that are placed on Academic Suspension will receive an email (to your EOU email account), which includes the online appeal form. Suspended students should contact their advisor to discuss their appeal and for assistance in preparing an academic plan. Then complete the online appeal form (link below) and submit your plan and any additional supporting materials by email to the Academic Standards Committee – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note this process is for academic reinstatement only.
This appeal does not address any Financial Aid SAP Appeals.
Please see the Financial Aid forms page for appeal/reinstatement of financial aid.
Spring 2018 reinstatement form will open Early March 2018 for students submitting appeals based on Winter Term grades!
(form requires an EOU email)
If you were suspended for a term OTHER THAN WINTER 2018 and are seeking reinstatement, please contact email@example.com regarding reinstatement procedures.
