Readmission of Students Not in Academic Good Standing at Utah State University
Utah State University cares about the academic success of its students. If you left Utah State University with a USU cumulative GPA of less than 2.0, you are not in "good standing" academically at USU. As such, your readmission will be processed differently so as to better ensure your academic success. Our goal is to help students return to good standing quickly, and to help students meet their educational goals.
Students who seek readmission but who are not in good standing must reapply by the following readmission dates:
Fall Semester: June 1
Spring Semester: October 1
Please note that these deadlines are earlier than the regularly published admissions deadlines for students returning in good standing (USU cumulative GPA of 2.0 or greater) to the university. The reason for this is that classes fill up very quickly. Desirable course times and required classes become progressively harder to add. Because our goal is to remove obstacles to academic success, we require that students not in good standing apply for readmission while course availability is at a premium, as well as to allow time for thorough academic advising.
The Readmission Process for Students not in Good Standing:
- Apply for readmission at: usu.edu/admissions/returning/apply.cfm
- Write a Personal Statement. This statement must address the following:
- Why you did not achieve academic good standing at USU
- What you have been doing in your time away from USU that would enhance your academic performance
- What major you would like to pursue upon readmission
- How many semesters you estimate it will take you to graduate
- What in your life has changed that will help you to succeed at USU
- Please indicate how you intend to pay for school
- Submit an Academic Inquiry form.
- Note: Both the Personal Statement and the Academic Inquiry must be mailed to the Admissions Office - they cannot be submitted electronically.
The address for the Admissions Office is:
0160 Old Main Hill
Logan, UT 84322-0160
Next, most students meet with a committee of educators who visit with the student about his or her desire to return. The committee is not designed to intimidate, but rather to provide the student with direction and to assess the student's readiness to return. Students meeting with the committee may wish to visit with an advisor in the department of his/her choice, or review the department's Web site, to become familiar with departmental policies and coursework.
Students who are readmitted will work closely with two advisors who will work as close partners with the student on the road back to academic success.
