Reinstatement

A student who has been dismissed from Rutgers University and wishes enroll into the Newark College of Arts and Sciences or University College Newark may request reinstatement into the college. The student must wait a minimum of one year after the date of dismissal before making such a request and must show proof of successful college-level work at another institution when applying to the Scholastic Standing Committee. Students who have been academically dismissed from the Newark College of Arts and Sciences or University College-Newark may not be reinstated through the regular readmission or school-to-school admissions processes.

To request reinstatement, a Request for Reinstatement form, available from the Office of Academic Services, must be completed and submitted to the Scholastic Standing Committee, c/o Office of Academic Services, 312 Hill Hall, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Newark, NJ 07102 by December 1 (for spring semester readmission) or June 15 (for fall semester readmission).

Upon review of a properly completed and documented Request for Reinstatement form, the Scholastic Standing Committee may reinstate a dismissed student. Such students will be notified in writing to make an appointment to see a member of the Scholastic Standing Committee. A course of action to improve the student's academic standing will be specified in an academic contract, which may include a limitation on extracurricular activities or the number of credits carried and/or changes in the student's program of study. Students who are reinstated remain on probation and must fulfill the terms of their academic contract or face another dismissal from the school. Students dismissed from the Newark College of Arts and Sciences or University College-Newark a second time for failure to meet any of the standards listed for dismissal above are not eligible to return to any matriculating program or unit within the Newark College of Arts and Sciences or University College Newark.

Students who are denied reinstatement must wait at least a full year before applying for reinstatement to Newark College of Arts and Sciences or University College-Newark.
