Special Readmission Policy

Any former UNCP student who was academically dismissed, suspended, or placed on academic probation at the end of his/her final semester and has not attended UNCP for a period of two (2) academic years may apply for readmission under the Special Readmission Policy. All students admitted under this policy return on probationary status and must follow the policies and procedures outlined under "Academic Probation" in the Academic Policies section of the UNCP catalog. In order to qualify for the Special Readmission Policy, students must earn a 2.0 or higher in their first 12 hours after being readmitted. Students may apply for readmission under this policy one time. Once approved, the decision will not be reversed.

Upon meeting the requirements for this policy, the student's GPA will be computed excluding all previous grades below C (2.0). All grades will remain on the student's transcript, but only those previous courses in which a grade of C or better was earned will count toward graduation. All course work, however, will count toward attempted hours, and all grades, including those from the student's previous GPA, will be calculated for honors purposes.

Students admitted under the Special Readmission Policy may not make use of the grade replacement policy and must continue to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.00. Failure to maintain this minimum GPA will result in a two-semester suspension.

Departments with more rigorous GPA standards than the general University requirement of 2.0 have the right to deny admission to a program. Any student readmitted under this policy must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours at UNCP after readmission in order to qualify for graduation.

Students must apply for the Special Readmission Policy through the Center for Student Success.
