Readmit Application

Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS)

Purdue University Calumet welcomes Purdue University students in good academic standing.  According to University regulations, when academically dropped a student is required to sit out one regular semester.  If dropped more than once, a student is required to sit out at least one calendar year.  After completing the required sit out period, a student may petition for readmission to the Purdue campus he or she wishes to attend.

Purdue students requesting readmission must complete an online readmission application  and pay a $100 non-refundable fee to Student Accounts by phone at (219) 989-2560 or in person in the Enrollment Service Center located in Lawshe Hall, Room 130. This fee must be paid by the designated deadline in order for your application to be processed. 


There are two ways a student can be considered for readmission to Purdue University Calumet:

  1. A Purdue University student with a grade point average of less than a 2.0 must be within 30 quality points of achieving a 2.0 and must raise his or her grade point average to a 2.0 within the first 12 credit hours of readmission to Purdue University Calumet.
  2. By submitting transcripts with a minimum of 15 hours of college level work after you were dropped. These transcripts must include English Composition with minimum grade of a “C” or better (if this requirement was not already satisfied at PUC) and a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 must be achieved in all classes attempted. If submitting transcripts please refer to the following link: for the form and guidelines which include a $30 transcript evaluation fee.  Please contact the Office of the Dean of Students for final transcript submission deadlines. 


Classification 8:  A student who is a Classification 8 (second semester senior) does not have to sit out but must pay the $100 non-refundable readmission fee and complete the readmission application as soon as possible in order to register for the upcoming semester.

2.0 Semester GPA:  A student who achieved a 2.0 semester or better does not have to sit out and may be readmitted by completing the readmission application as soon as possible in order to register for the upcoming semester.  The $100 non-refundable fee is waived.

Application Deadlines

The Office of the Dean of Students will only accept completed and paid Readmission Applications. The deadlines to submit an ODOS Readmission Application and pay the readmission fee is 4:00pm on each deadline date. As we are trying to be environmentally conscious, no mailed applications will be accepted or processed. “NO” applications will be processed after the deadline.
