If you were academically dismissed, we want to thank you for your interest in returning to SUNY Erie. You are headed in the right direction and our faculty and staff are dedicated to helping you find success.
Please see the information below to help you though the process of returning as a matriculated, degree seeking student.
The Academic Review Committee meets monthly prior to the start of each semester. Students will receive a letter by mail indicating the committee’s decision within 10 business days of appeal meeting date. Appeals can be submitted up until two (2) weeks before the start of the semester. Semester start dates are listed on the academic calendar. The Academic Review Committee will determine your academic standing. The following represent the possible decisions: Academic Probation 1: Students may be readmitted and placed on Academic Probation 1. Registration restrictions will be in place and students will be required to meet with a counselor to develop a Success Plan in Starfish. If a student does not improve their GPA beyond the standards, they will be placed on Probation 2. Academic Recovery: If dismissed following Spring 2019 or later students may be readmitted and placed on Academic Recovery. Registration restrictions will be in place and students will be required to meet with a counselor to develop a Success Plan in Starfish. Student must earn a 2.5 in the returning semester to remain matriculated Remain Academically Dismissed: The student is advised to take courses as a non-matriculated student to raise GPA. Students may be required to wait one calendar year following a dismissal and complete at least 6 credit hours as a non-degree student, earning a GPA of 2.5 or higher in those courses before being considered for readmission. Students who have changed their major can request a QPA grade adjustment for coursework taken in the previous major which is no longer relevant to current program requirements. A student may have this rule applied to only one change of curriculum which occurs within the first 36 credit hours attempted at the college. Make an appointment to meet with the Department Chair in the new academic program to complete the Change of Curriculum QPA adjustment form.
