Returning from Suspension

Students who are suspended from Ohio University and wish to return must petition to re-enroll at the University. Students petitioning to re-enroll are expected to speak to what they’ve learned from the incident, how their behavior has changed, and how they plan to meet the behavioral expectations of the University should they re-enroll. In addition, students must complete a behavioral and/or substance use assessment and follow all recommendations prior to re-enrolling. Students should review their outcome letter for specific details of their requirements. Petitions must be submitted no sooner than 60 days prior to the semester in which the student wishes to re-enroll.

Petitions should be submitted via our online form .

Only complete petitions will be considered. A complete petition includes the submission of the online form, a completed Provider Report Form, as well as the completion of any sanctions that were required to be completed prior to re-enrollment. Again, students should review their outcome letter for specific details of their requirements. Petitions will be reviewed and students will typically be contacted with a decision within one week of all materials being submitted. Please contact Community Standards and Student Responsibility at communitystandards@ohio.edu or by phone at (740)593-2629 with any questions or concerns.
