Reinstatement Procedures

A dismissed student will be permitted to enroll in the College of Agriculture only when approved for reinstatement by the Academic Standards Committee of the College of Agriculture. If you desire to request reinstatement in one of the other colleges at K-State, contact the Academic Dean's office in that college to ascertain their reinstatement procedures.

Important Information to Consider Before Applying:

The Academic Standards Committee considers it essential that the dismissed student confer with a College of Agriculture academic advisor before completing the Petition for Reinstatement. The advisor’s assistance should be sought regarding what can be done to improve academic performance, a schedule of classes for the semester if reinstatement is granted, and estimated grades for the semester. Normally, a student must wait at least two semesters before they will be considered for reinstatement. Please note that reinstatement in the semester following dismissal is the exception rather than the rule. If you choose to petition for reinstatement in this circumstance, you should be prepared to show to both your advisor and the Academic Standards Committee unusual or extraordinary reasons why an exception should be made in your case.

If you have an extenuating circumstance which contributed to your academic performance, you MUST make an appointment with the Office of Student Life ( at least a week before the Petition Due Date listed below. The Office of Student Life may request documentation from a medical provider or others addressing the circumstances. The Office of Student Life will provide a recommendation to the Academic Standards Committee based on information provided. DO NOT provide any documentation directly to the College of Ag, as it will NOT be viewed by the Academic Standards Committee.

Applicants planning to petition for reinstatement in the College of Agriculture must complete and return the petition to Waters Hall, Room 229 or email to The Academic Standards Committee generally meets shortly before the first day of class for the fall, spring, and summer terms.

When your completed petition is received by the College of Agriculture, you will be given a 20-minute appointment with the College’s Academic Standards Committee. The faculty members who comprise the committee will have reviewed your petition and records prior to your conference. They will be interested in reasons why you desire a college education, factors which led to your dismissal and changes you have or will make to ensure your future academic success.
