Students who are reinstated to an institution after being dismissed for poor academic performance need a program to assist them in overcoming the problems that contributed to their poor performance. One college at a mid-sized public university provides a holistic reinstatement program (Excel) that addresses the many needs of these students. The purpose of this article is to describe the Excel program, which is designed to contribute to the success of reinstated students and consequently improve the university’s retention rate.
