Readmission

A student is eligible for readmission one time. A student is not eligible for readmission if dismissed due to safety issues.

Withdrawn or dismissed students seeking readmission must contact the Admissions Department to initiate the process. As outlined in the Readmission Procedure, the Admissions Department will coordinate with all necessary departments to verify the former student’s eligibility to reapply. The readmission decision for eligible re-applicants will be made by the program-specific Admissions, Progression, and Graduation (APG) committee, following review of the former student’s reapplication materials. Readmission location and start date are subject to availability of space in the desired program. For readmitted students, the appropriate Curriculum Committee will determine placement and plan of study. Students may only apply for readmission to a program once.
