Readmission Policy

Readmission after an Absence. Students who have not been suspended, but who have not enrolled in classes for one or more semesters, must complete the requirements for initial admission as outlined above. Students readmitted after an absence may be required to repeat courses in which content has changed significantly.

Readmission after Academic Suspension. Students who have been dismissed because of academic deficiency must appeal to the Academic Committee for readmission to OCU. Please refer to the Academics portion of the catalog under the heading "Grade Point Average Requirements."

Readmission after Suspension for Social Misconduct. Students dismissed because of misconduct may petition for readmission to the University after completing the suspension period. Suspension is for the Fall or Spring semester following the dismissal, and students may not take courses during an intervening summer term. These petitions will be reviewed the Student Life Committee. Readmission will be granted only upon a demonstration that the circumstances that led to social misconduct have been corrected.

Duration of Suspension. Suspension applies to the Fall or Spring semester following a student's dismissal. Suspended students may not take courses during an intervening summer term.
