Readmission after Withdrawal
Students seeking readmission who have been inactive (not enrolled in a course) for greater than one (1) year and military students exceeding the 6-month grace period after an approved military leave must reapply by following the admission process and satisfy all current admission criteria for their program. Students seeking readmission who have been inactive for greater than two years must fulfill the degree requirements of their major as they appear in the current catalog. If, for any reason, the University dismisses the student, the Admissions Committee will review the application for readmission, and the applicant may have to submit an appeal form and documentation.
Students within the American Sentinel College of Nursing and Health Sciences are also subject to the Continuous Enrollment Policy.
Master of Science in Nursing – Nurse Practitioner Specialization Readmission
Master of Science in Nursing – Nurse Practitioner Specialization student reenrollments receive a review by the Dean and Director of the program. Students may need to repeat select core and Nurse Practitioner Specialization population-focused courses that allow for reengagement into the curriculum. Clinical hours receive a review to determine if hours need repeating depending on the timing of the reenrollment.
Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Readmission
Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) student reenrollments receive a review by the Dean or designee for courses that may transfer. Students may need to repeat select core courses that allow for reengagement of the DNP project.
Readmission after Dismissal
Students dismissed for failing to meet satisfactory academic progress may apply for readmission one year from the date of dismissal or after one parent term. Please refer to the Dismissal Policy. Students seeking readmission in an undergraduate program must meet the current application requirements, provide all current documentation, and deliver a letter requesting readmission providing details as to why they will be successful if allowed to return to study. Students seeking readmission to a graduate program of study will receive an evaluation on a case-by-case basis by the Program Director of the program. An appeal to the Dean may be necessary. For programs without a Program Director, the readmission decision rests with the Dean. The student may appeal the Dean’s decision to the Provost.
Readmitted students may have to participate in academic improvement plans as designed by the Program Director of the program or Dean as part of the readmission process. The academic improvement plans provide for conditional admission for the students’ next two terms or one semester. Dismissal from their programs of study with no appeal option occurs if students violate their academic improvement plans. Students dismissed for breach of the Civility Code or the Academic Integrity Policy are not eligible to apply for readmission.
If readmitted, nursing students must follow the catalog in effect at the time of their re-enrollment. If required courses from previous program versions are no longer in the program at reenrollment, the appropriate Dean may designate a reasonable substitute.
