You will only be allowed to enroll in classes for the semester petitioned. If you choose to defer your start date, you will be required to submit a new petition packet. You are limited to three attempts during your academic career at UTSA. Once all attempts have been exhausted, you will no longer be able to submit a petition for reinstatement.
If you have been out for more than three consecutive semesters (Fall, Spring, and Summer) you will need to reapply to the program for which you are seeking reinstatement into. If you wish to apply to another program rather than the one you were originally dismissed from, you will also have to apply into the new program. We ask that you submit your graduate program application and petition for reinstatement concurrently to avoid missing application deadlines.
Graduate Reinstatement Forms:
Petition for Reinstatement Packet: The completed packet must be submitted to The Graduate School by the appropriate deadline.
Early Consideration Waiver: The completed wavier and letter is required for students who have decided to not wait the recommended semester (Fall, Spring, or Summer) from the date of their dismissal.
