Academic Readmission

Readmission Semester: Due Date:
Fall Semester 2nd Friday in August
Spring Semester 3rd Friday in Decemeber
(note: Registration for Spring in November of each year. Waiting too long to reapply may result in a lack of course availability for spring semester.)
Summer Semester 2nd Friday in April

A student may apply for readmission the semester following the completion of suspension period. All readmitted students are required to attend the Academic Continuance Experience for Success (ACES) workshop before the beginning of the semester of readmission.

If a student readmitted after suspension fails to obtain a semester GPA of 2.0 in any semester before achieving a cumulative GPA of a least 2.0, the student will be placed on a SECOND suspension. Students who are placed on academic suspension for a second time are no longer eligible to attend Old Dominion University.

Students readmitted to ODU do not automatically qualify for financial aid. All students who are suspended should contact their financial aid counseling team to discuss their options.

Students who are readmitted for a particular semester and choose not to enroll in that semester are required to resubmit their application for readmission.



This is not a suspension appeal form.
