Academically dismissed students may be re-admitted on probation if they have not enrolled for at least two semesters. Please note that Spring and Summer semesters count as a single semester. A personal interview with the Academic Advisement Center is required.


  • Your acceptance is only valid for the semester in which you first applied. If you do not enroll, you must go through the application process again, submitting another application.
  • Re-admitted students are subject to all regulations and requirements of the catalog current at the time of re-enrollment.
  • Upon re-admission to SVSU, the Office of the Registrar will mail you your IT access information. Please check the SVSU website for the dates/times you are eligible to register for classes.
  • Academically dismissed students will be re-admitted on probation. Students on probation must achieve a minimum semester GPA of 2.00 during the first semester in residence at SVSU or be subject to academic dismissal.
