Policy for Re-Entry to Degree Programs
If fewer than three years have elapsed since the last day of classes of the most recent spring or fall semester in which a student was actively registered, a student may petition the Graduate Academic Standing Committee for re-entry to their degree program. Re-entry to a graduate degree program at Drew University is subject to approval by the Graduate Academic Standing Committee. Students on a Leave of Absence or otherwise withdrawn from the university must submit documentation in support of their re-entry according to the guidelines indicated on the petition to the Graduate Academic Standing Committee form. If there are any questions concerning the student’s status, the Graduate Academic Standing Committee will request that the student submit an academic plan, discussing previous academic work, future plans, and the basis for successfully completing the program.
With regard to financial aid, students are advised to consult with the Office of Financial Assistance regarding deadlines and eligibility.
If more than three years have elapsed since the last day of classes of the most recent spring or fall semester in which a student was actively registered, a student must apply for admission to a current Drew University degree program through the admissions office and, in the event of admission, may be considered for advanced standing in that degree program based upon coursework previously completed at Drew. However, neither admission to a degree program nor advanced standing is guaranteed. The student’s application to a current degree program will be evaluated in accordance with standards for current degree program applicants.
Registration in either the January or Summer Terms, does not stop this policy from being enforced during the fall and spring terms.
