Students may need to be readmitted to the college.  Procedures vary based on circumstances as follows:

Previous Attendance
Students who have not been enrolled for two or more academic years must submit an updated standard application.  Proof of residency must be provided upon request (as well as proof of immigration status, if applicable).  The application fee is waived.  (Students who have been out less than two academic years do not need to be readmitted, but may need to update personal and academic information using the appropriate forms.)

Previously Dismissed for Academic Reasons
Students who are dismissed from the college as of a specific semester and who want to be readmitted for that semester must submit a letter requesting approval for readmission to the Readmission Committee. They must also make an appointment to meet with the committee.

Students who were dismissed and have been out for one or more semesters must make an appointment to meet with the Retention Coordinator or another member of the Readmission Committee.

Clinical Nursing Students
Nursing students should consult the Nursing Student Handbook for information about procedures for re-entry to clinical nursing coursework.  They may also consult with an advisor in the Office of Admissions and Advising.

Regardless of the circumstances, all students are strongly encouraged to consult with an advisor.
