Students who have interrupted their course of study for any reason may request to be reinstated to the nursing program through the Admission, Progression, Graduation (APG) Committee.
Students who fail a nursing or withdraw from nursing courses in the first semester of the nursing program are not eligible for reinstatement. These students must reapply to the program.
Readmission is subject to a competitive review.
- To be reinstated to the nursing program the student must meet with the academic advisor before submitting the request for reinstatement to the Admission, Progression, Graduation (APG) committee.
- The student submits a written request for reinstatement to the academic advisor who forwards it to the APG Committee for consideration. The committee reviews documentation from the student file and the written request to approve or deny reinstatement.
- Guidelines for “Request for Reinstatement” letter:
- Include name, address and phone number
- Letter should be typed and no more than one page in length (study plan may be attached if needed)
- Address the letter to the APG committee.
- Include the following: Request to be reinstated to the nursing program, name of the unsuccessful course, reason not successful, changes the student will make in order to be successful if allowed to repeat the class, a detailed study plan.
- Submit the letter to the academic advisor.
- The student will appear before the APG committee only at the request of the committee.
- Additional documentation may be requested by the committee in order to make a decision about reinstatement.
- The student will be notified in writing of the committee’s decision. The Committee’s reinstatement does not guarantee a seat for the student. Reinstatement may depend upon the availability of space in the class. If there are more students approved than seats available, students with the highest program GPAs will be reinstated.
