  • Petition for Reinstatement

    Petitioning for Reinstatement provides you an opportunity to speak with the Associate Dean about your academic progress in your most recent semester(s). During this interaction, students commonly express extenuating circumstances that impact(ed) their ability to meet the rigors of the University and strategies for returning to “Good” academic standing. You may submit a Petition for Reinstatement for any future semester prior to the completion of the required three consecutive semesters of recess.

    Petitioning for reinstatement does not guarantee you will be reinstated, and simple desire to return to the University is not sufficient support for a petition. You need to prove (not merely assert) you are ready to succeed if allowed to return to the University and resume course work. This Petition for Reinstatement process is available for recessed students whom where not admitted to a college and have earned less than 56 credits.  Note: This petition does not guarantee reinstatement into MSU.

     If you have been dismissed from the University, do not complete this form.  Students who have been dismissed must submit a Readmission Application after the completion of their two year (six consecutive semesters, including summers) term.
