SUNY Oneonta


The readmission process is overseen by the Academic Advisement Center. Students who withdrew, were administratively withdrawn, or were academically dismissed must apply for readmission. Students who have been academically dismissed are not eligible for readmission until one full year has elapsed since the dismissal. The student must also have successfully completed at least 12 s.h. of new academic course work with at least a 2.5 GPA at another institution. In all cases, applications for readmission must be received by the deadline dates noted at the end of this section. Readmission is not guaranteed. Past history at the college, space availability, and academic history are all considered.

After meeting these conditions, academically dismissed students may seek readmission under one of two options:

Option I—Original Academic Record: Readmission is based on previously-earned GPA with all semester hours earned counted toward the degree.

Option II—Reinstatement Record: The student’s GPA is recomputed to 2.0. The student loses previously earned "D" and "E" credit (semester hours and quality points) necessary to compute the GPA at 2.0.

The decision regarding grades to be invalidated rests with the Academic Advisement Center. The grades will be invalidated in the following order:

  1. Low grades will be forgiven to bring the student to a minimum 2.00 GPA. If it is impossible to get to a minimum 2.00 GPA, then all grades will be forgiven from the GPA.
  2. Once a 2.00 or the next highest GPA is achieved, no other grades will be forgiven.
  3. Grades will be forgiven in the following order: "E" in the major, "E" out of the major, "D-" in the major, "D-" out of the major, etc.
  4. If grades of "D-" to "C-" are forgiven, students will lose the credit earned for those courses.

Policies regarding readmitted students and their degree requirements:

  1. Students will be required to complete the degree requirements that are in place at the time of their readmission. If no more than two years have elapsed since the student’s last attendance at SUNY Oneonta and the student was no more than 6 s.h. short of graduation, then the student may return under his/her previous requirements unless the student is a major in the School of Business, Education, or Dietetics.
  2. Readmitted students who were previously dismissed may not declare majors in the School of Business, Education, Dietetics.
  3. Readmitted students who were previously academically dismissed must maintain a 2.00 cum GPA in all coursework taken since readmission and must complete a minimum of 12 s.h. of new coursework at Oneonta (post re-matriculation) to be eligible for degree consideration. Failure to maintain this GPA will result in a second dismissal.

Students who are academically dismissed after readmission will not be eligible for readmission another time.

Students who choose to decline their readmission will have their Oneonta academic record returned to the academic record in place at the time of their last attendance at the college.

Applications for readmission are available on the Academic Advisement website or through the Academic Advisement Center. Questions regarding readmission may be directed to the Academic Advisement Center (100 Netzer). There is an application fee of $20. Deadlines for applying are as follows:

  • June 1 for Fall readmission
  • October 1 for Spring readmission
  • April 2 for Summer readmission (only available to students who can complete their degree by August)
