2014-2015 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]


Readmission is required for all students in the following categories:

  1. Any student whose attendance has been interrupted for a period of six or more years and/or;
  2. Any student who has been academically dismissed from the university for insufficient academic progress at the end of their previously enrolled semester/session. Students applying for readmission may submit a Readmission Application prior to the start of registration.

Applications can be accessed from the Undergraduate Admissions website ( and must be sent to: Oakland University, Undergraduate Admissions, 101 North Foundation Hall, Rochester, MI 48309-4401. Students should contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 101 North Foundation Hall, (248) 370-3360, by the deadlines listed below prior to the start of the semester in which the student expects to enroll:

Fall semester- July 1
Winter semester – November 1
Summer semester – March 1

If readmitted students fail to enroll for the semester or session for which their readmission is granted, that readmission is considered void. If students wish to enroll for the semester or session immediately following the term for which readmission was granted, they may do so with a written request to update their readmission application addressed to Undergraduate Admissions. However, if such students wish to enroll for a term later than one semester or session following the term for which they were readmitted, they must complete another readmission application and submit it by the deadlines. Readmission to the university is not automatic for students dismissed because of poor academic performance. The number of times a student will be readmitted is limited. An application for a first readmission by a student who has been dismissed for insufficient academic progress is reviewed by the university’s Readmission Committee. Decisions about readmission are made on a case-by-case basis involving review of the student’s file. A student dismissed for academic performance who is readmitted but fails to progress academically, resulting in a second academic dismissal, may not apply for readmission to the university for a period of three years. The Academic Standing and Honors Committee will review the Academic records of students applying for readmission a second time. If a student is dismissed for academic reasons a third time, the student may not be readmitted to Oakland University.
