Important: Students who were previously dismissed from Boise State who want to return, will need to provide all of their admissions materials to the Admissions Office by the following deadlines:
- Spring: December 1
- Summer: May 1
- Fall: August 1
If you are dismissed from the university, you are barred from enrolling for one semester (fall or spring) after the first dismissal and for one academic year after any subsequent dismissal. If you wish to appeal this waiting period, you must file an appeal with the University Academic Appeals Committee. You can learn more about academic standing and the university requirements on the Registrar’s Office website. You will be permitted no more than two (2) reinstatements. A third dismissal is final.
If you were previously academically dismissed from Boise State and have waited the required number of semesters to return, you will need to submit a new application for admission as your first step for reinstatement.
In addition to your application for admission and the Nonrefundable Application Fee or approved App Fee Waiver, you will also need to submit official transcript(s) from each college or university attended after you were enrolled at Boise State. (If you earned an academic associate degree from a regionally accredited institution and your credits were evaluated by Boise State University prior to June 2004, we recommend re-submitting official transcripts for core certification review even if not necessary for admission purposes since the core certification process has changed.)
If you have attended other colleges or universities since your dismissal from Boise State, you will need to meet our transfer admission standards in order to be reinstated as a degree seeking student. Note: Beginning Spring 2018, if you have attended other colleges or universities since your dismissal from Boise State, you will be assessed for admission using only credits earned since leaving Boise State. For re-admission to Boise State, you will need to have an overall 2.25 GPA on credits completed post-dismissal.
As noted above, a third dismissal from Boise State University is final. If you have been dismissed three (3) or more times and you would like to appeal the final nature of your dismissal, you must complete an Academic Appeal to the University Academic Appeals Committee. As part of the appeal process, you are required to develop an Early Reinstatement Plan with an academic advisor. If your appeal is approved, you will be contacted directly to discuss the next steps for enrollment. Contact the Registrar’s Office at 208-426-4249 to learn more about the appeal process. You can also download the necessary forms through the Registrar’s Office website.
Once Admitted: Students reinstated to the university after a dismissal, are admitted and placed on academic probation. Additionally, a hold is placed on their account that prevents them from registering for classes. Once a student receives their reinstatement notification from Admissions, they will receive an email from the Advising and Academic Support Center (AASC) via email@example.com with their next steps in the reinstatement process.
