Former Degree Students

Students will be admitted back into their last declared major, provided they were in good academic standing (2.0 grade point average or higher). Students with grade point averages below 2.0, if readmitted, will have to redeclare a major. Students whose last attendance were in any of the following majors will be readmitted to the School of Arts and Sciences and must meet with a departmental advisor to seek approval to return to their previous major:

  • Medical Laboratory Science
  • Nutrition and Food Science
  • Community Health
  • Post Baccalureate Program in Health Careers Preparation
  • Nursing

All re-admitted students should obtain academic advising as soon as possible. To make an appointment with your advisor, contact the Office of Academic Advising at (212) 772-4882, Room 1119 East.

Students who have failed any part of the Basic Skills Test cannot re-enroll at Hunter in a degree or non-degree status. It is recommended that these students enroll at CUNY Community Colleges. Once proficiency in basic skills can be demonstrated, students may apply for readmission to Hunter. Baccalaureate degree holders from regionally accredited U.S. Institutions are exempt from testing. Contact the Testing Center at (212) 772-4898, Room 150 North, if you have any questions concerning the placement exams.

Degree re-admits should send official transcripts from all undergraduate colleges attended since their last attendance at Hunter College to: Hunter College, Office of Admissions & Recruitment, Evaluations Unit, Room 203 North, 695 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10065.

Former SEEK Students

SEEK students who have not been in attendance for four or more semesters and/or have been in the SEEK program for ten semesters or more, need special permission to return to SEEK. Students with less than 60 credits who do not wish to return to SEEK must obtain a release from the Director of the SEEK program. Visit the SEEK website.

Former Non-Degree Students

Non-degree students must either matriculate or leave college when they have attempted 24 credits. Baccalaureate, Master's and Doctoral degree holders from a college or university accredited by a regional U.S. accrediting association are exempt for the 24 credit limit, provided proof of degree is submitted along with their application.

Students will not be readmitted to non-degree status if they have already completed 12 credit hours and have not demonstrated basic level of competence in reading, writing and mathematics through basic skills testing.
