Academic Reinstatement:

Washington State University expects students to maintain academic standards of excellence and make satisfactory academic progress toward their degree objectives.  Undergraduate students are in good academic standing if both their current WSU semester and cumulative grade point averages are 2.00 or above, and/or they are eligible to be enrolled.  Students not meeting the criteria above are considered academically deficient.

Reinstatement process

  1. Check grades on zzusis
  2. Read the message on your zzusis portal page. This message identifies the regulation under which you are deficient.

Rule 38

  • Turn in application (and pay fee) to WSU Spokane Student Affairs.
  • You must document attendance in any summer school courses, whether at WSU or another institution.
  • Courses for the next semester (excluding summer) will be cancelled if an application has not been received and approved by the listed deadline.

Rule 39

Students with any third semester (excluding summer and winter terms) cumulative gpa below 2.0.

  • Students will be dismissed and courses for the next semester (excluding summer) will be canceled. There is no early reinstatement process.
  • Students who are dismissed are required to remain out of WSU for two consecutive semesters and cannot seek non-degree student status.
  • Students may continue to take summer courses at WSU.
