Steps to complete BEFORE your appointment:
Students who do not maintain a semester GPA of 2.0 or above after being placed on probation will be disqualified from Arizona State University.

If your appeal is denied you will need to sit out one academic year before seeking readmission.
Students who have not appealed successfully should contact the Office of Student and Academic Programs in the Fulton Center, Suite 110, 480-965-6506. You will need to meet with an OSAP advisor to learn how you can gain readmission after one year.
