Students who are academically dismissed lose their matriculated status. They may appeal
the dismissal through the Office of the Dean of Student Services. If the appeal is
successful, the student is rematriculated and may resume full-time or part-time matriculated
If the dismissal is upheld, the student must meet one of three conditions in order
to rematriculate: 1) Participate in a student success workshop and work with an assigned
advisor/counselor; 2) Register for part-time studies for the next semester on a non-matriculated
basis. If the student receives grades of C or better in six credits or more, he/she
may then return to full-time or part-time matriculated study in the following semester;
or 3) Register on a non-matriculated basis or remain non-enrolled for two semesters.
The student may then reapply for full-time study (or part-time matriculated study)
without meeting special conditions.
Dismissed students who have met the conditions for rematriculation must apply for
rematriculation. Application for rematriculation should be initiated in the Office
of Admissions. In all cases, the conditions specified to be rematriculated must have
been satisfied or be in the process of being met at the time of application.
Students who are dismissed from either full- or part-time status and lose their matriculation
are not eligible for financial aid from either federal or New York state sources.
If a student’s dismissal is successfully appealed, her or his financial aid may still
be in jeopardy due to a lack of satisfactory academic progress.
