Readmission decisions are made by the Program Administrator as outlined in the Readmission Policy in the Student Catalog. Decisions are individual based on the student’s prior academic history as well as the space availability at their campus and program of study. Students with questions about their readmission denial are encouraged to schedule a meeting with their campus academic leadership to discuss their personal situation.
