What other options do I have for my education?

At a certain point, students may be told by the Reinstatement Committee that "Because of repeated failure to do satisfactory work, you will not be reinstated at Illinois State again." If you receive this decision from the Reinstatement Committee, and have already utilized the New Start program, it is in your best interest to purse other options for your education. You will need to research transfer admission requirements at other colleges and/or universities. You may be required to attend a community college for a period of time.
