Students who have interrupted their schooling for one semester (not including summer term) must reapply for admission. Any previous holds must be removed before readmission can occur. Students who have attended another institution during this absence are considered to be transfer students and must comply with the requirements for transfer students.

Please note that students cannot be readmitted to Nursing and Aviation but must reapply to the program.
