Students who have withdrawn from Yale College or who have been required to withdraw may ordinarily in due course apply for reinstatement according to the procedures administered by the Committee on Reinstatement of the Yale College Dean’s Office. Candidates for reinstatement are occasionally referred by the chair of the committee to their directors of undergraduate studies to discuss the courses that they should take while withdrawn, in order to prepare for reinstatement, or the courses they will take after their return.
In order to control the enrollment of Yale College, the University may in some years or terms place a restriction on the number of students who may be reinstated to a particular term, and the Committee on Reinstatement may specify that a student requiring an odd number of terms for the completion of his or her undergraduate program may be reinstated only to a spring term. This restriction on the term to which a student may be reinstated will sometimes require a discussion between a candidate for reinstatement and the DUS about the most appropriate time, in terms of the sequence of courses the student must take, for reinstatement.
The chair of the Committee on Reinstatement is Dean Risa Sodi.
