    Eligibility Requirements for Petitioning for Conditional Reinstatement 

    IMPORTANT NOTES:   

    ALL STUDENTS PETITIONING FOR REINSTATEMENT MUST HAVE A ZERO ($0) BALANCE DUE ON THEIR STONY BROOK ACCOUNTS.

    All students Suspended at the end of the Fall 2019 term will be allowed to remain in Winter Session courses. However, doing so does not guarantee future reinstatement.

    Students suspended in Fall 2019 who successfully petition for conditional reinstatement for the Spring 2020 semester, must be registered in their advisor-approved Spring 2020 courses by  January 22, 2020.

    Suspended students eligible to petition for reinstatement who do not petition by the January 10, 2020 deadline, or whose petitions are denied, will be deregistered from their Spring 2020 courses and campus housing assignments on January 21, 2020.

    Suspended students not eligible to petition for Spring 2020 reinstatement, will be deregistered from their Spring 2020 courses and campus housing assignments on January 7, 2020 .

  • Conditional Reinstatement

    Conditional Reinstatement

    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.

    IMPORTANT NOTES:

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

    Students on Conditional Reinstatement enrolled for the Fall 2019 semester who do not meet the terms of their prescribed reinstatement conditions and are dismissed, will be deregistered from their Spring 2020 courses and campus housing assignments on January 7, 2020 .

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

    Students suspended in Fall 2019 who successfully petition for Conditional Reinstatement for the Spring 2020 semester, must be registered in their advisor-approved Spring 2020 courses by January 22, 2020.

  • Dismissal

    Dismissal

    Students who began the Fall 2019 semester on Conditional Reinstatement and failed to meet the prescribed conditions of their reinstatement, are Dismissed without appeal.

    To discuss alternative options for continuing your education outside of Stony Brook, you may  walk in to see an advisor in person at the Academic and Transfer Advising Services Office on one of the available dates/times listed on our Google Calendar.  Students will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no need to call to schedule an appointment.  Please note that walk-in advising is NOT available on the January 2020 Transfer Orientation dates as noted on our Google Calendar.  For details on local colleges that may accept dismissed students, please click here .
