Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to come back into the same major I had when I was last at Iowa State?
No, a student is able to petition to be reinstated in to any major or college.
Do I need to file a reentry application with the Office of the Registrar, in addition to the LAS reinstatement application?
Yes, if you are an international student OR if you have been away from the university for more than 12 months, you will need to file the Reentry Application. Domestic students who have been away from the university for less than 12 months do not need to file a reentry application.
What if my transfer grades won’t be available before I want to file my petition for reinstatement?
Proof of your current grades are required in your petition. This can be a copy of your current midterm grades or an up to date screen shot of your current grades. If these are unavailable, a copy of an official email from the instructor of the course with your current grade may be uploaded into the reinstatement petition. Final grades will be required after completion of the course(s) to finalize reinstatement.
