Undergraduate Reinstatement Policy

AS.008

Undergraduate students who have been academically dismissed from Life University as a result of the Academic Standing Policy (AS.038) and the Dismissal Appeal Process may apply for re- entry into an undergraduate program after two academic quarters or one academic semester and pending satisfactory completion of a minimum of 12 semester credits/18 quarter credits with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher from an accredited institution of higher education. Re- admission is subject to review and approval by the Undergraduate Admissions Committee and the Dean to whom the program reports.

A student who is reinstated is automatically placed on academic probation until a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 is achieved. Academic requirements will be determined by the Catalog in force at the time the student re-enrolls at the University. For further information concerning reinstatement, students should consult with the Office of Admissions.

Should a student be academically dismissed a second time, they will not be reinstated to any undergraduate program within the University.

Procedure(s):

Reinstatement is not automatic upon request. The student must complete the Petition for Undergraduate Reinstatement package to include the following:

  • Completed Petition for Undergraduate Reinstatement Form
  • Student Statement (typed not handwritten) briefly explaining specific strategies the student will take to raise their GPA above required minimums. The student should reflect on the causes that led to academic difficulties and be sure to link the plan for academic improvement to concrete strategies and to a specific academic plan.
  • Academic Plan (developed with academic advisor input) showing quarterly course plan. The student must consult with their Academic Advisor before deviating from this Academic Plan. Students who deviate from the Academic Plan submitted during the reinstatement process will not be considered for reinstatement if they are dropped for low scholarship again in a subsequent quarter.
  • Statement from the Academic Advisor of the student’s department concurring (or not) with the academic plan (developed with academic adviser input). This is the academic advisor’s opportunity to offer reasoning in support of the student plan and the ability of the student to successfully achieve the plan and to note any reservations about the details of the plan. The academic advisor must submit this statement in hard copy with the reinstatement packet or via email to the Dean to whom the program reports. If academic advisor is not available, the program coordinator will complete this statement.
  • Unofficial Life University transcripts and copy of transcripts from any coursework taken elsewhere since the student was dismissed from Life University.
  • Admissions Application – A student who is petitioning for reinstatement may file an application before the reinstatement is approved. There is a non- refundable application fee.

The reinstatement packet will be kept on file for 6 years after the student’s graduation date.

Deadlines: Completed Reinstatement Packets must be submitted by the deadlines listed below

  • Reinstatement for Fall Quarter August 15th
  • Reinstatement for Winter Quarter November 10th
  • Reinstatement for Spring Quarter February 15th
  • Reinstatement for Summer Quarter May 10th

Summer Quarter Financial Aid Disbursement Procedures


Direct Deposit. Life University is pleased to provide direct deposit for all living expense disbursements. To have your monies deposited directly into your U.S. bank account, visit EagleNet to enroll.

Disbursement Policy. Summer 2021 quarter initial disbursements for Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans, Pell Grant, GTEG, and SEOG will begin in the first week of classes, July 12, 2021.

Life University will release living expense refunds to students only after verifying student’s attendance status and making sure no financial or academic holds are on their records. Students must be enrolled in courses counting towards their degree to be reviewed for aid eligibility. Federal aid cannot be awarded for courses that do not count toward the degree. 

All unpaid tuition/fees/meal plans and other University debts (such as but not limited to lab fees or institutional charges) are deducted from students’ financial aid before disbursement. 

The disbursement for Graduate PLUS Loans, HOPE Scholarship and most tuition-based scholarships will occur during the 2nd week of the quarter, provided funds are available. Only students who have submitted all the necessary requirements will have their disbursement available during this time frame.

Please remember that to qualify for Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant GTEG you must be enrolled UG full-time (12 hours or more). In addition, to qualify for a full-time HOPE or Zell award you must be enrolled UG full-time (12 hours or more) or to receive part-time award you must be enrolled in UG 6-11 hours.

Educational/Living Expense Refund. Direct Deposits will be made when all proceeds have been received and all eligibility requirements for Financial Aid programs have been met, and in accordance with Federal Regulations related to Title IV funds which are: 

  • No later than 14 days after the first day of class if Federal funds are credited on or before the first day of class. OR
  • No later than 14 days after the credit balance occurred if the funds were credited after classes began.

You will receive your living expense refund on or after July 12, 2021:

  • If you are making Satisfactory Academic Progress (as defined by the Financial Aid office), and
  • Your aid proceeds have been disbursed to Life University. 

However, if you receive an educational/living expense refund before July 12, 2021 and drop hours that week, you may be over-awarded on your financial aid eligibility. Federal Regulations require that the Financial Aid Department notify the Office of Student Accounts to send back the amount of your aid, if any, you are not eligible to receive, due to the drop-in hours. (See Disbursement Policy above).

Your refund may be delayed if you filed your Financial Aid forms late, or they are incomplete.
