Your academic standing is CONDITIONAL REINSTATEMENT if you have been reinstated following academic Suspension or Dismissal. Students on Conditional Reinstatement must reach good academic standing (2.0 or higher cumulative GPA), or meet the terms of their prescribed reinstatement conditions to remain at the University. At the end of every semester, the University will review the progress of all Conditionally Reinstated students and outreach to them informing them of their status.

Students already on Conditional Reinstatement from prior terms must continue to meet the conditions of their reinstatement each semester to be allowed to continue studies at Stony Brook.  If you meet the terms and conditions of your reinstatement at the end of a given semester, your transcript will indicate "Conditional Reinstatement" again for the upcoming term.  If you failed to meet the terms and conditions of your reinstatement, you will note that the academic standing remark on your transcript will indicate that your Conditional Reinstatement is "Under Review", prompting the Division of Undergraduate Education to review your academic progress. Once that review is completed and a final decision is made, you will be informed of your status; either Conditional Reinstatement again or Dismissal.  If your cumulative GPA reaches 2.0 or higher at the end of a semester of Conditional Reinstatement, the academic standing remark on your transcript will be updated to "Good".

One of the most important responsibilities of conditionally reinstated students is to maintain regular contact with their assigned academic advisor.  Your advisor can offer you academic advice, support, and referrals to other campus resources that may be helpful to you.  The University has high hopes for your academic recovery and future progress and is committed to supporting your pathway to academic success.


Students on Conditional Reinstatement are subject to the credit limits as outlined in their reinstatement letter/agreement.

Students on Conditional Reinstatement enrolled for the Spring 2018 semester who do not meet the terms of their prescribed reinstatement conditions and are dismissed, will be deregistered from their Fall 2018 courses and campus housing assignments on June 9, 2018.

All students on Conditional Reinstatement will be allowed to remain/enroll in Summer Session courses.  However, remaining in Summer courses does not guarantee renewal of Conditional Reinstatement status.

Students suspended in Spring 2018 who successfully petition for Conditional Reinstatement for the Fall 2018 semester, must be registered in their advisor-approved Spring 2018 courses by July 13, 2018.
