Readmission after Dismissal for Poor Academic Performance

Arizona College of Optometry

It is at the discretion of AZCOPT to readmit a student who has been dismissed for poor academic performance. To initiate the reapplication process, candidates must complete and submit a new application and proceed through the standard application process established by the program. Before reapplying, however, individuals should seek the advice of an admissions counselor, Associate Dean, or Dean. It is expected that the individual would have addressed documented deficiencies before reapplication and be able to demonstrate that he/she meets all admission requirements and technical standards of the College.

The College's Admissions Committee will review completed applications of candidates and submit recommendations to the Dean for action. The Dean, via the Office of Admissions, then notifies applicants in writing of admissions decisions.

No guarantee of readmission is implied, and questions related to advanced standing and similar issues will be addressed as they are for new applicants. Reapplications are allowed only within the first two years following dismissal and readmission will be granted only once.
