After being academically dismissed from the university, students can petition for reinstatement to the university after waiting 2 semesters. Reinstatement is not guaranteed, and simple desire to return is not sufficient support for a petition. Petitioning students need to prove they are now ready to succeed if they are allowed to return to the university. It is advised to take academic course work at another institution during your time away from Ohio State, to demonstrate that you are capable of succeeding in quality college-level work. See the college advisor if you are interested in attending another institution, to help guide your course decisions for transfer back to Ohio State.
