Returning students who are eligible for readmission and who have not been enrolled at the College for two (2) academic semesters must submit a new admission’s application and update residency classification prior to registration.  The student is required to meet the curriculum requirements in effect at the time of readmission according to the current College catalog.

Students who have been placed on academic or disciplinary suspension must fulfill the terms of their suspension before being considered for readmission.  Students on disciplinary suspension must also submit a letter to the Vice President requesting readmission.

The College reserves the right to deny readmission to a former student, including a student who has unsettled financial obligations at the College or who has not complied with previous disciplinary requirements.  All of the student’s debts to the College must be paid in full before registering for courses.
