Admission of Former Students

Students who have reached time limitation or who have officially withdrawn from the University by submitting a Withdrawal Form, or who are not currently registered are eligible to be considered for readmission into their program. The student's department must recommend that the student be readmitted, stipulating any conditions for readmission that it deems appropriate. If the student's department chooses not to recommend readmission, the student may appeal to the Associate Dean (Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies). The decision of the Associate Dean (Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies) shall be final and not subject to further appeal.


Requirements for completion of the program will be evaluated. Some of these requirements may need to be redone or new ones may be added. Fees will be based on the terms of readmission up to the limit of the degree (i.e., Master's 3 or PhD7) plus the term of readmission. Applicants should consult the Program Progression tables (Master's and PhD), and direct questions regarding fees to the appropriate Graduate Program Coordinator/Administrator. The "Request for Readmission" form and other pertinent details regarding the readmission procedure can be found on the GPS website for Time Limitation.
