FAQ Category: Academic Standing

What is my status when I return to TTU?

Readmission decisions are determined by the student's Academic Dean. You will not have a new Academic Standing status until coursework is completed that may be considered. If you are approved for readmission following completion of the suspension term, you are reinstated and eligible to attend courses and participate in all extracurricular activities as governed by the rules of the specific activity and subject to the conditions established by the Academic Dean or committee granting permission to attend classes. If readmitted, you must follow the Advising and Registration requirements for Academic Warning or Probation status, as appropriate based upon your status when you left the institution.
