Student In the Bookstore

Readmission to the College is necessary for formerly matriculated students who have separated from the College because of an expired temporary academic leave, graduation, or academic dismissal. The readmission process must be completed for you to be matriculated.

Readmitted students are matriculated under the current catalog and are required to meet degree and program requirements in place at the time of readmission. The School of Business and Management has enacted a policy that courses completed more than 10 years prior to matriculation cannot be used to satisfy business degree requirements and must be repeated.

Special Types of Readmission
