  • You must disclose any misconduct you have experienced scholastically since your last enrollment at Florida A&M University. Your application for readmission may be denied if there is failure to comply.
  • If you are not pursuing a 2nd bachelor's degree; you will be asked to indicate the academic program of your last enrollment at Florida A&M University, and you will be readmitted into the academic program last enrolled. The Admission’s Office does not change academic programs for returning students who are not pursuing a 2nd bachelor's degree. You must contact the University Registrar’s Office at 850.599.3115 for academic program change procedures.
  • The Admissions Office does not change names or residency for returning students. You must contact the University Registrar’s Office at 850.599.3115 for name and residency change procedures.

Academic Warning, Probation, and Suspension Process

If a student has been placed on academic warning, probation, and/or suspended from the University, they must adhere to the following guidelines in order to return:

  1. Academic Warning or Probation: Student does not have to sit out, but they will need to complete an Academic Plan of Study. The advisor will then send an email to the Registrar’s Office at registrar@famu.edu
  2. First suspension: It is optional if the student wants to sit out one semester without being readmitted; however, if they sit out two semesters, the student will need to complete a readmit application and an Academic Plan of Study. The advisor will then submit an email to the Registrar’s Office at registrar@famu.edu
  3. Second suspension: Student will sit out one semester and complete an Academic Plan of Study with their academic advisor. The Advisor will send an email to the Registrar’s Office at registrar@famu.edu to have the suspension hold removed.
  4. Final suspension: Student has to sit out an entire year. When the student returns to the university, they will need to  complete an Academic Plan of Study with their advisor. The advisor will then send an email to the Registrar’s Office at registrar@famu.edu.


Academic Dismissal Process

A student who has been permanently suspended (dismissed) from the University for academic reasons must remain out until they have earned their Associate of Arts degree (AA) before applying for readmission to FAMU. However, a student whom have earned an Associate of Arts (AA) prior to entering FAMU, must remain out until they have earned their Bachelor degree before applying for readmission to FAMU. The student must maintain a 2.00 or higher average (as computed by FAMU) on all work attempted at each institution, and be in good standing and eligible to return to each institution previously attended (FAMU Regulations 4.012).
