A returning graduate student who has been granted admission into a program, enrolls in the program and then stops-out for more than 12 months must reapply to the program by the program application deadline date and meet all admission requirements. Our goal is to make this process smooth and easy for your return to St. Scholastica.
To return to the same graduate program at St. Scholastica, a returning student must apply for readmission to the College.
If a returning student has taken courses through other colleges during their absence from St. Scholastica, official transcripts from those colleges may be required if you need credit for courses.
