Admissions Criteria for Readmission


Fill out the online application for the associates degree or the bachelors degree and upload the following supporting materials.

Personal Statement

We request a brief statement addressing the reason for withdrawal and why you are prepared to resume your studies.

Official Transcripts

If you have studied at the college level since attending the Division, we require one official transcript from each college or university attended. The Office of Admissions can review your application if you provide unofficial copies of your transcripts. However, if you are admitted, you must submit all official documents within your first semester of study. A transcript is considered "official" only when received by the Office of Admissions in a sealed envelope.

I've Applied! What's Next?

Typically, an admission decision is rendered within two to four weeks of the submission of your completed application beginning in:

  • March for the fall semester
  • September for the spring semester
  • February for the summer semester

Prior to the start of the semester, you will meet with an academic advisor to discuss your course elections. You must meet all prerequisites for elected courses.
