Reinstatement

If you are ineligible to continue at the University (i.e. your result of session on your last academic review was “May Not Continue at University” or “Required to Withdraw”) and you wish to apply for reinstatement, you must submit a Reinstatement Request Form by the appropriate deadline.

Consult your faculty’s website for specific guidelines regarding the requirements for reinstatement. You may be asked to include some of the following information:

  • a summary of the relevant circumstances surrounding your academic situation during the last session attended
  • reasons for reinstatement at this time
  • reasons for selection of courses/program indicated
  • activities since last registered at the university, including all academic work

Reinstatement is not guaranteed. If you have questions or concerns regarding reinstatement, please contact the faculty office associated with your program(s) of interest.

Submitting a reinstatement application

  1. Complete the reinstatement application form.
  2. Submit a Service Request in Mosaic and attach the completed form.
  3. Pay the $100 non-refundable reinstatement application fee to your McMaster student account. Your account will be charged accordingly.
  4. Your Faculty Office will follow up with the results of your request for reinstatement.

Submission deadlines

Please note: the Faculty of Science does not consider requests for reinstatement for the Spring/Summer session.

What is the status of the reinstatement application?

Once your application is submitted and paid for, it is sent to the faculty office for their review. Once a decision is made, you will be notified at the email address you put on the application.

Can I apply for reinstatement

You can list more than one program on the reinstatement application if they are all within the same faculty. A separate application and fee are required for each faculty you apply to.
