Downers Grove, IL Campus Catalog / College of Pharmacy, Downers Grove Campus / Admissions / Readmission After Dismissal for Poor Academic Performance

Students dismissed or who withdraw due to poor academic performance may reapply for admission to CPDG if they:

  1. Seek academic counseling from the Office of the Dean prior to enrolling in the required advanced prepharmacy curriculum;
  2. Complete at least two semesters or three quarters of full-time study (i.e., at least 15 credit hours per semester or quarter) of a curriculum at the advanced prepharmacy level or higher at a regionally accredited U.S. college or university;
  3. Earn grades of at least C (not C-) in all courses taken;
  4. Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or better.

Students fulfilling these requirements will be permitted to reapply to the University and CPDG. Students should obtain their applications from the Office of the Dean and not through PharmCAS. Completed readmission applications must be submitted by February 15th to the Office of the Dean. The completed application of reapplying PS-I students will be forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review and recommendation. The completed application of a reapplying PS-II or PS-III student will be forwarded by the Office of the Dean to the Student Promotion and Graduation Committee for review and recommendation. The respective committees will review applications for evidence of improved academic potential. Committee recommendations are forwarded to the Office of the Dean for final action.

No guarantee of readmission is implied, and questions related to advanced standing and similar issues will be addressed as they are for new applicants. Readmission will be granted only once.
