A student placed on academic dismissal may petition the Vice President for Academic Affairs for an early return to Lincoln College-Normal. The petition is a written statement from the student explaining the basis for the petition. The petition should include an explanation of why the suspension occurred and a specific plan and steps that will be taken to improve academic performance. If the petition is approved by the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the student will be permitted to return to Lincoln College on Academic Probation and carry a course load of no more than fifteen semester hours.
Conditions of re-enrollment will also include specific attendance requirements and use of academic support services to assist the student in returning to Good Academic Standing. A student permitted to re-enroll through petition must earn an institutional grade point average of 2.00 in that semester in order to continue enrollment the next semester. A student who does not earn an institutional grade point average of 2.00 that semester will be dismissed from Lincoln College for one calendar year. Students may be granted an early return from dismissal by petition only one time.

All students failing to meet minimum progress requirements will be placed on probation for thirty days. The student will be counseled on the steps to reach satisfactory progress by the next evaluation.
Students showing any improvements in the deficient area(s), but who fail to meet the minimum requirement will be placed on a second probation. If, at the end of the second consecutive probation, a student is not showing any improvement, the Director of Midwest College of Cosmetology will meet with the student’s instructor to evaluate the student’s lack of progress. After the evaluation has been discussed a student may be dismissed. Three (3) total probations (not consecutive) of not showing an improvement will result in the student’s dismissal.
