A: This sounds more like an education law matter than an immigration law matter. But it would be difficult for any type of attorney to advise on your next step, based on the brief facts here. Reinstatement could depend on an academic institution's specific rules and policies. An attorney could offer more meaningful guidance with additional information about the grounds for dismissal - whether academic, administrative, financial, etc., and additionally knowing more about the school's policies. You could try reposting and adding Education Law as a category - not every question is ultimately picked up on this forum, but you might have better chances of a response with the additional heading. Good luck
