Regardless of the option you choose to pursue for reinstatement, please contact your academic advisor to discuss options.

2. Academic Performance Agreement (see petition) completed with your academic advisor and signed by the College Head Advisor
3. Personal statement describing the extenuating circumstances that led to academic suspension and that describes the actions you will take to ensure your future academic success, and/or how any interfering circumstances have been resolved

Reinstated to Probation Status
Students who are approved for reinstatement will be placed on Academic Probation status and must achieve a minimum 2.0 GPA for the term to be eligible for continued enrollment at OSU.
Raise Your GPA
To return to good standing status after reinstatement, students must raise their term and OSU cumulative GPA to 2.0 or higher.
It can be advantageous for students to keep assigned letter grades of C or higher to achieve a term GPA of 2.0 or above.
Students who only take Pass/No Credit (P/N) or Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) grades will need to earn at least 50% of the credits as P and/or S. Failure to do so will result in Academic Suspension because the term GPA was not 2.0 or higher.
With a 0.0 GPA and all N or U grades, there is no academic standing to calculate for the current term and a lack of demonstration of academic improvement; therefore, it defaults to the previous term’s standing or the academic standing calculation protocol.
Contact your academic advisor prior to opting for P/N or S/U grade options. For information on Academic Standing, visit the Grades, Honor Roll, & Academic Standing page.
