Students who have been enrolled and received a grade notation in a course (see Academic Policies for grade notations), but whose attendance was interrupted for two or more regular semesters, excluding summer, are required to file an application for readmission by the admissions deadline of the term in which they wish to enroll. Students seeking readmission must submit a $25 reapplication fee (non-refundable). Students whose previous CSU Pueblo work resulted in a cumulative grade point average below 2.000 (“C”) must also provide a written statement detailing the previous academic difficulties, the student’s plans to overcome these difficulties and any other pertinent information to assist the admissions committee in making a decision.
Students who are re-admitted after an absence of two or more semesters, excluding summers, are governed upon readmission by the catalog current at the time of readmission. Any college credit earned more than 10 years before the date of admission or readmission is not applicable toward the degree desired unless it is approved by the appropriate department chair. This policy includes transfer credit previously accepted by CSU Pueblo. This policy does not apply to general education courses. Any course substitutions, waivers, exceptions, or petitions completed prior to readmission must be submitted to the appropriate approving authority. Any exceptions to the policy must have prior approval from the Provost.
Degree-seeking students who have attended another post-secondary institution or have taken college-level correspondence or extended studies courses must provide complete official transcripts of such studies. Each student must indicate all previous college experience on his or her application, including any coursework since last attendance at this institution. Applicants may not ignore previous college attendance. Students who fail to inform the Office of Admissions of all previous college work will be subject to delay of admission, loss of credit, rejection of application and/or cancellation of enrollment.
Undergraduate students who return to Colorado State University Pueblo after an absence of at least three years and whose cumulative CSU Pueblo grade point average is below 2.000 are eligible for academic renewal. Students who take advantage of the Academic Renewal Policy will not have grade-point averages carried forward upon readmission. Courses with an earned grade of D+ or below are not eligible to count toward graduation. Students must be currently enrolled for academic renewal to be processed. Academic renewal will not be granted more than once. Any college credit earned more than 10 years before the date of readmission is not applicable toward the degree desired unless approved by the chair of the department offering the course(s) [or equivalent(s)]. This policy does not apply to general education courses. Students who elect academic renewal will be required to complete at least 30 hours of credit after readmission before they are eligible for a baccalaureate degree. Students who have been granted Academic Renewal must complete 60 semester credits with CSU-Pueblo after the Academic Renewal designation to qualify for graduation with scholastic honors. The Academic Renewal Application can be obtained from the Registrar’s Office.
