Forms and Handbook


  • Petition for Reinstatement (Requires meeting with advisor)
    • Use when petitioning for reinstatement after a dismissal from a department, the College of Engineering, or The Ohio State University. You should submit your Petition for Reinstatement to the program you wish to pursue, not necessarily the program from which you were dismissed. (Example: students who were dismissed from OSU while in the College of Business who now want to pursue a specific degree in the College of Engineering should submit a Petition for Reinstatement to the degree program in the College of Engineering.)
  • Fresh Start Application
    • Use when petitioning to apply the Fresh Start Rule to your academic record. In order to be eligible to apply Fresh Start to your academic record, you must refrain from enrolling in any classes at OSU (any campus) for 5 consecutive academic years (20 quarter terms or 15 semester terms). If you have questions about the Fresh Start Rule and whether you should pursue it, contact an academic advisor prior to re-enrolling at Ohio State.
  • Drop/Withdrawal Petition (Requires meeting with advisor)
    • Use when petitioning to withdraw from classes after the final drop deadline has passed, or when petitioning to change the effective date of a course you have already dropped. Only approved for extenuating circumstances. Review petition for more information.
  • Late Add Petition (Requires meeting with advisor)
    • Use when petitioning to enroll in a class after the add deadline has passed. You will need permission from both the instructor and the department chair of the course you are requesting to add. Review petition for more information
