A first dismissal does not require an appeal to return from dismissal, but will require you to submit a readmission application (if you have been out for at least one long-semester such as a fall or spring) prior to the deadline for the semester that you intend to return. You will also need to have at least a 2.5 overall GPA on any transfer work that you have taken elsewhere while you have been away from UT Austin.
Only College approval of a Scholastic Dismissal Appeal will prevent
your dismissal. You may appeal if urgent, substantiated, and non-academic factors hindered your academic performance. Very few students win approval for appeals immediately following dismissal. If you feel you meet this criteria, you can download a Scholastic Dismissal Appeal at: http://www.utexas.edu/cola/student-affairs/_files/pdf/dismissal_appeal.pdf
