Petition for Immediate Readmission following Academic Suspension

Students on 1st academic suspension are required to sit out from EKU for one full regular semester (see catalog for policies regarding additional suspensions).

  • If there were documented, catastrophic circumstances beyond the student's control, University policy allows the student to submit a Petition for Readmission to the Admission Appeals Committee.  The committee will review the required documentation supporting the petition, as well as the student's full academic record, and potential to successfully complete college work.  If approved, the student will be allowed to attend the semester immediately following the suspension.  Please note, the suspension will remain on the academic record and transcript.

  • Academic Dismissal has a mandatory 5 year sit-out period.  Students on Dismissal are not allowed to petition for immeidate readmission and must sit out their time.  

To petition for readmission, students should complete the Petition for Readmission form and submit it and all of the supporting docuements to the Registrar's office by the deadlines listed below.  Incomplete petitions will not be reviewed by the committee and may prevent you from being considered for the term in which you applied.  Students who have been approved via the Petition for Readmission process must also complete the admission's application: https://admissions.eku.edu/apply
