Readmission Policy for Academically Dismissed Students

Students who have been dismissed from Sinclair for academic reasons and want to be readmitted must petition for readmission. The petition must be submitted to the academic advisor at least three weeks before the first day of classes for the term students want to enter. Only the division dean and division advisor can make exceptions to this requirement.

A student who is dismissed for the first time: must remain out of school for a minimum of one term, including summer. (For example, if dismissal was at the end of fall term, the student cannot attend spring term, but may petition for readmission to summer term.) A student dismissed for a second time must remain out of school for one academic year (three terms).

A student dismissed for the third time will not be readmitted to Sinclair unless there are documented, extenuating circumstances. Petitions for readmission are available from the student’s academic advisor.

To re-establish VA educational benefits, a student must submit a copy of the readmission petition to Veteran Services in person, Dayton Campus, Room 10324, or via email to, after readmission to the college.
