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

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 for more details.


Former Non-Degree Students

Non-degree students must either matriculate or leave the 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 from the 24 credit limit, provided proof of a completed degree is submitted along with their application.
