Students with a KU Cumulative GPA less than a 2.00 are required to apply at least two weeks prior to classes starting.
Applications for readmission for domestic students are handled by the Office of Admissions.

Policies that all students should be aware of upon return to KU
Readmission after Dismissal Policy
Undergraduate students who have been dismissed or meet the College’s policy for dismissal are subject to this policy if applying for readmission into the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Students can be readmitted back to KU after a first and a second dismissal but they must complete their readmission requirements.
- First Dismissal: Sit out one fall or spring semester, complete at least one 3 credit course transferable to KU Core 1 - 5 Goals, earn a 2.50 GPA in all courses taken since dismissal
- Second Dismissal: Sit out one academic year, complete at least one 3 credit course transferable to KU Core 1 - 5 Goals, earn a 2.50 GPA in all courses taken since dismissal
- Third Dismissal: A third dismissal is final
If all requirements for the KU Core 1 - 5 goals are completed, no coursework is required. Students returning after an academic dismissal will be readmitted on probation and must meet their required term GPA requirements to avoid another dismissal.
