Readmission

Students who previously attended Southern may apply to return and continue their studies.

The readmission options below outline the appropriate application pathway. If approved for readmission, students will be reinstated to their last approved program of study for the program requirements in effect for the current catalog year. If a student left on academic warning or probation, that standing will still be in effect upon readmission.

Undergraduate Students

  • The First-Year Application is for students who applied to Southern in the past, but did not start classes.
  • The Transfer Application is for students who earned 12+ credits, after leaving Southern, at another institution.
  • The Readmission Application is for all other returning students. Applications are due no later than 1 week prior to the start of the semester. 
  • Note: Dismissed students may reapply with the Readmission Application once a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher is achieved as a non-matriculated student.

Graduate Students

  • The Graduate Application is for students who meet one of the following: (1) earned 9+ credits, after leaving Southern, at another institution, (2) began a master's degree or sixth-year certificate more than six years prior, or a doctoral degree more than seven years prior (see Time Limit for Completion in Degrees and Requirements), or (3) were previously dismissed and at least one semester has lapsed (must include a petition to the graduate program coordinator describing why they will be successful if readmitted).
  • The Readmission Application is for all other returning students. Applications are due no later than 1 week prior to the start of the semester.
