College of Engineering Policy on Academic Action for Fall Semester 2023
The details and regulations surrounding academic standing and dismissal can be complicated.
Please check with your academic advisor and the University Catalog to get all the details.
- Details about academic standing and dismissal are given in the University Catalog.
- Special considerations for College of Engineering students who withdraw from courses:
- Students who withdraw from the same course twice will receive an advising hold on course registration. These students will be required to meet with their advisor to discuss their plan of study and obtain approval for registration.
- Students who withdraw from all courses for 2 consecutive semesters will receive an advising hold. These students will be required to meet with their advisor to discuss their plan of study and obtain approval for registration.
- Students who withdraw from all courses for 3 consecutive semesters will be ineligible to enroll in the College of Engineering and may appeal to the Engineering Academic Appeals Committee.
- A student who has been dismissed for academic reasons may be readmitted upon a successful appeal to the Academic Appeals committee of the college. Students who are subject to dismissal (IE) and who wish to appeal their case for continuation must write an appeal letter and submit it to the chair of the Academic Appeals committee.
- Similarly, students who wish to re-enroll in the College of Engineering after having been out of school as a result of a dismissal must write a letter of appeal to the College of Engineering Academic Appeals committee requesting readmission.
- Dismissed students who are not enrolled at MU in the spring semester must appeal for readmission if they desire to take summer courses at MU.
- Letters may be sent as an email attachment (strongly preferred) to MuEngrAcademicActions@missouri.edu or mailed to:
Academic Appeals Committee
c/o Nick Balser
College of Engineering
W1025 Lafferre Hall
Columbia, MO 65211
- Appeals must be received by Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2024, at noon.
- A personal visit with the director of undergraduate studies of the student’s department and advisor before appealing by letter is often helpful, both to the student and to the committee.
- The primary concern of the appeals committee is the likelihood of future success. Accordingly, any appeal should include an explanation for past poor performance and reasons for expecting better in the future.
- A student who is readmitted after a successful appeal will be placed on academic warning. Such student if dismissed again will not be eligible for readmission.
- If the appeals committee allows a student to re-enroll, it may set conditions such as courses to be taken, minimum grades, total hours, etc., to which the student must adhere.
