Academic Suspension


Students must meet minimum academic standards in work completed at Texas State. Those who fail to do so are placed on academic probation or academic suspension, as appropriate. In determining whether a student is placed on probation or suspension, only grades earned at Texas State are considered.

For more information on Texas State University’s suspension policies visit: Academic Policies


The University College Office of the Dean will notify all General Studies, Exploratory, and Exploratory Professional majors who are placed on academic suspension via Texas State email.

Suspended General Studies, Exploratory, and Exploratory Professional majors whose academic suspension was a result of an extenuating circumstance may be eligible to appeal to the University College Dean's Office for reinstatement at Texas State University.

To appeal for reinstatement, University College students must complete a Petition for Reinstatement (see below), including the required documentary evidence, by the posted deadline for the semester in which the suspension occurred.

Students who are currently not active should apply for readmission as returning students using Apply Texas. Note: Do not pay the fee until notified of reinstatement results.

Suspended students who do not provide documentary evidence of extenuating circumstances will not be reinstated.

To appeal, complete this form and provide all required documentation:



We encourage you to plan ahead to meet deadlines; do not wait until the final moment to submit a petition for reinstatement.

  • Summer 2021 deadline is Wednesday, May 19, 2021, at 12 noon.
