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

Students dismissed for poor academic performance may reapply for admission:

  1. Complete at least two semesters or three quarters of full-time study (i.e., at least 12 credit hours per semester or quarter) at an advanced prepharmacy level or higher at regionally accredited U.S. colleges or universities after seeking academic counseling from the CPDG Dean's Office. The Dean will inform students of the Student Promotion and Graduation Committee's recommendations.
  2. Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or better for the two semesters or three quarters of full-time study at the advanced prepharmacy level or higher.
  3. Earn at least a grade of "C" in all courses taken. Grades of C- (minus) are not accepted. 

Students fulfilling these requirements will be permitted to reapply to the University and to the College. Students should obtain applications from the CPDG Dean's Office (not through PharmCAS). The application deadline is April 1st. Completed applications of reapplying PS-I students will be forwarded by the CPDG Dean's Office to the Admissions Committee for review and recommendations. Completed applications of reapplying PS-II, or PS-III students will be forwarded by the CPDG Dean's Office to the Student Promotion and Graduation Committee for review and recommendations. Each committee's recommendations are forwarded to the Dean for 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.

Reapplications are allowed only within the first two years following dismissal. Readmission will be granted only once.
