Immediate or Early Reinstatement

If you have been dismissed from the university and wish to return without sitting out the required time, you will need to complete a Reinstatement Appeal.

Immediate or Early Reinstatement Appeal Process

    1. Schedule a 60-minute appointment with an Academic Development and Recovery (ADR) advisor on the Academic Development and Recovery webpage, or by calling (208) 426-4049.
    2. Schedule a meeting with your assigned major-specific advisor. Their contact information can be found in your Student Center.
    3. Complete and sign the Plan of Study form following your discussions with an ADR advisor and your major-specific advisor.
    4. Email the Plan of Study form, the Reinstatement Appeal Form, one page letter, and supporting documentation to

Letter Guidelines

Write a letter to the University Academic Appeals Committee (one page, single- or double-spaced, typed) that includes:

    • Date and student ID number
    • What you are requesting (immediate/early reinstatement)
    • Description of any extenuating circumstances and how they affected you and your academics
    • Explanation of how those circumstances have been resolved or are being resolved
    • Statement of your academic goals and plans
    • Signature


Include any documentation that relates to the circumstances you discussed in your letter. While not required, it is highly encouraged to include documentation if you have it. This might include:

    • Proof of doctor’s visits, hospital stays, etc. with dates
    • Obituary or funeral program
    • Police report
    • Letter from doctor, counselor or lawyer on official letter head
    • Military orders

If your appeal is approved, at the start of the semester, a Probation Advising Required Hold will appear on your Student Center. AASC will lift this hold after meeting with an ADR Advisor. This follow-up meeting will typically take place during Weeks 7-9 of your first semester back after formal reinstatement. Students who have been reinstated two or more times will need to complete three academic coaching sessions or enroll in ACAD 102 to have their Probation Advising Required hold removed.
