Being suspended does not revoke your admission to Indiana University. It may impact your admission to a specific college, school or program, and it does impact your access to university resources and services, for example:
You forfeit tuition, fees and grades (if applicable) for the semester in which you are suspended.
You cannot attend or register for classes here or at any other IU campus.
You cannot live in IU residence halls.
You could lose your financial aid or scholarship packages.
You will be blocked from your IU email account.
Consequences of suspension
During the period of suspension, the Dean of Students places students who are suspended on the university checklist. When your suspension is over, you are removed from the checklist.
You are welcome to call our office at 812-855-5419 to make sure that you have been removed from the list.
Withdraw from all classes so that you do not incur all F’s for non-attendance.
For assistance with this process, call the Student Advocates Office at 812-855-0761.
During a period of suspension you cannot register for classes on the IU Bloomington campus or any other IU campus.
Your registration privileges will be reinstated the first business day after your suspension ends. However, if you are on the university checklist for any other reasons (for example, unresolved disciplinary matters, unpaid tuition, overdue parking fines, or poor academic performance), you will need to resolve those matters before you can register for classes.
If you choose to take classes from another non-IU campus, contact your academic advisor—when not under suspension—to determine if your credits will transfer. Transferring credits to IU is dependent on a variety of factors, including what courses they are, where they are being transferred, and what degree requirements they might fulfill for you.
When you are suspended, a notation is placed on your transcript that you are suspended from Indiana University.
All activities through the Registrar’s Office are restricted during your suspension, including the ability to request an official transcript. However, for the purposes of transferring to another college or university, an exception is usually granted.
If you would like to request a transcript for the purposes of transferring to another college or university, contact the Office of Student Conduct.
When your suspension ends, the notation is removed from your transcript, and access to the registrar is reinstated.
You may be eligible for a partial refund of your tuition and fees. Any refund, which may be available to you, is dependent upon:
The time of the semester when you withdraw from classes
The circumstances of the withdrawal
Contact the Office of the Bursar at 812-855-2636 to determine your eligibility.
Because there are so many types of financial aid from multiple sources, each with specific stipulations, you should contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance to find out the impact of your suspension on the type of financial aid you are currently receiving.
Because students who live in IU residence halls must be enrolled in classes, students who are on suspension cannot live in IU residence halls.
If you live in a fraternity or sorority house, you should contact your national headquarters or house corporation to find out if you have to be enrolled in classes to live in your chapter house.
All IU technology accounts, including your IU email account, are blocked while serving your suspension. Once the suspension is over, your accounts are reinstated.
Periods of suspension are considered a separation between the student and the university. As such, suspended students do not have access to any university counseling or advising services, and cannot engage in ongoing academic conversation or work with faculty. This includes appointments at Counseling and Psychological Services, the Health Center, general academic advising appointments, and engaging with faculty about academic work. The only services a student may access during a suspension are through the Office of Student Conduct (812-855-5419) and the Student Advocates Office (812-855-0761).
You may continue to use the SRSC and HPER during your period of suspension—but not with your student ID. You will need to purchase a day pass with each visit.
