Students who have been disqualified from CSUMB can become eligible for enrollment once again through the process of readmission after a minimum of one academic year. Readmission refers only to admission to the University. Individual programs may decline to allow a student to return to the program. In order for a returning student's file to be reviewed, students must submit new transcripts from all institutions previously attended (except for CSUMB transcripts).
All readmissions submitted to CSUMB are reviewed by a committee. Meeting minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee admission to CSU Monterey Bay. Approvals are based upon a student's documented good-faith efforts to improve academic standing and improve circumstances within their control that directly resulted in the disqualification. Students may take courses at CSU Monterey Bay through Open University or any accredited institution (e.g. community college or University).
There are three levels of Reinstatement and readmission:
Students may appeal immediately for reinstatement only (readmission is not required in this case) after the first Academic or Academic-Administrative Disqualification. The Reinstatement Petition for Disqualified Graduate form below must be completely filled out and submitted to the Office of Graduate Studies for processing. A program committee will make the final decision in concert with the appropriate Dean.
Appeals deadlines must be met (see Office of Graduate Studies site for specific dates for each semester), even if the student does not intend to return to CSUMB that term. Students who do not attend the first term after reinstatement need to discuss the need for a Leave of Absence request after reinstatement; otherwise, the student may have to reapply to the program.
a. Second Academic Disqualification: Students who are Academically Disqualified after reinstatement will not be considered for reinstatement until a year has elapsed since being Disqualified. Students who intend to return after the year will need to reapply to the program prior to filing for reinstatement; however, students should expect to meet with the program coordinator prior to submitting an application for readmission. b. Administrative-Academic Disqualification: Students who are AdministrativeAcademically Disqualified after a previous disqualification of any type are not eligible for reinstatement.
Students academically disqualified for a third time will not be reinstated.
Students interested in reinstatement must sign and submit the REINSTATEMENT PETITION FOR DISQUALIFIED GRADUATE form to the Office of Graduate Studies in Building 1 (Administration) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Reinstatement Petition for Disqualified Graduate
