If you were previously registered at Hunter, and have not been in attendance for one semester or more, you are required to submit a readmission application. There is no need to apply for readmission if you received an Official Withdrawal (W grade(s)) for the semester prior to the one in which you would like to return to the College.

Admission Criteria

Students academically eligible, grade point average 2.0 or higher, are generally approved for readmission. The Office of Student Services or the SEEK Program must review all records of students whose GPA is below 2.0.

How to Apply

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.

Skills Proficiency Testing

All Non-Degree and Degree readmits are required to demonstrate basic levels of competence in reading, writing, and mathematics through proficiency testing prior to registration. These tests determine whether or not a student is prepared for courses in the college curriculum and do not guarantee placement in specific courses. Students who do not comply with the testing requirements will find access to courses severely limited. Baccalaureate degree holders from regionally accredited U.S. Institutions and Senior Citizens are exempt from testing.
