Readmission Policy for Academically Dismissed Students

If you have been dismissed from Sinclair for academic reasons and would like to be readmitted, you must petition for readmission. The petition must be submitted to an academic advisor at least three weeks before the first day of classes for the term you would like to attend.

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

If you are dismissed for the third time, you will not be readmitted to Sinclair unless there are documented, extenuating circumstances.

To be considered for readmission, you must:

  • Meet with an Academic Advisor a minimum of two times
  • Complete a readmission petition
  • Meet with a representative from Counseling Services as referred by your advisor
  • Take any required placement tests

Call 937-512-3700 to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor on the Dayton campus to begin the readmission process or meet with an academic advisor at one of our regional centers.

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 paperwork to the Military Family Education Center (formerly Veteran Services) in person, Dayton Campus, Building 10, Room 10-444, or via email to, after readmission to the college.
