Summer Bounce Back

University College provides a support program for students enrolled in summer courses called, Summer Bounce Back. Through intense support, this program will help students make academic progress.

Who is eligible?

Summer Bounce Back is targeted towards students who are on academic probation, who have been academically dismissed or who need to improve their grade point average for major admission. Program space is extremely limited.

Students who are not currently attending must also complete the admission application.

Decision Notification

Currently enrolled students will be notified of their conditional acceptance into the Summer Bounce Back program by May 11. Notification of final acceptance will occur via Illinois State University email on May 18, after spring semester grades post.

Students not currently attending Illinois State University will be informed of their Summer Bounce Back status via the Reinstatement Committee/Readmission process.
