The school's admissions department is expected to rule on his application by mid-December, the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday afternoon. If Golson is re-admitted, he would be eligible to practice with the team -- but not play -- during its bowl preparation.
Golson was suspended in May for a violation of the student honor code, and he told Sports Illustrated he cheated on a test. Golson spent part of this season working out with quarterback coach George Whitfield Jr. in California.
Golson started 11 games in 2012 and guided Notre Dame to the BCS national championship game, where it lost to Alabama. Golson threw for 2,405 yards and 12 TDs and also rushed for 298 yards and six scores.
