Readmission after Withdrawal
Students seeking readmission who have been inactive (not been enrolled in a course) for greater than one (1) year and military students who have exceeded the 6-month grace period after an approved military leave must re-apply through admission 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 student is a dismissal from the University, the Admissions Committee will review the application for readmission, and the applicant may have to submit an appeal form and documentation.
If a graduate student’s cumulative grade point is less than a 3.00 the student must agree to an academic improvement plan that is satisfactory to the Program Director or Dean. Appeals of the Program Director’s decisions may be made to the appropriate Dean.
Students within the American Sentinel College of Nursing are also subject to the Continuous Enrollment Policy.
Master of Science in Nursing – Nurse Practitioner Program Readmission
MSN-NP student re-enrollments are reviewed by the Dean and Director of the program. Students may be required to repeat select core and NP population-focused courses that allow for re-engagement into the curriculum. Clinical hours will be reviewed to decide if hours need to be repeated depending on the timing of the reenrollment.
Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Readmission
Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) student re-enrollments are reviewed by the Dean or designee for courses that may transfer. Students may be required to repeat select core courses that allow for re-engagement of the DNP project.
Readmission after Dismissal
Students who have been 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 the student will be successful if allowed to return to study. Students seeking readmission to a graduate program of study will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Program Director of the program with an appeal to the Dean if necessary. For programs without a Program Director, the readmission decision rests with the Dean and may be appealed to the Provost.
Readmitted students may be asked to participate in an academic improvement plan as designed by the Program Director of the program or Dean as part of the readmission process. The academic improvement plan will provide for conditional admission for the student’s next 2 terms or one semester. If the student violates the academic improvement plan, the student will be dismissed from the program of study with no appeal process. Students who have been 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 reenrollment. In cases when the university no longer teaches required courses, the appropriate dean may designate a reasonable substitute.
