Students who previously attended Southern, and subsequently withdrew due to personal or other circumstances, may apply to return to the University to continue their studies.
Students who earned 12 or more credits at another institution, after leaving Southern, must complete a transfer application to reapply with Undergraduate Admissions.
Graduate students who earned 9 or more credits at another institution, after leaving Southern, must complete a new application to reapply with Graduate Admissions.
All other returning students are eligible to complete the Readmission Application with the Registrar's Office to re-enroll. Upon approval, students will be reinstated at their last academic standing, and to their last program of study in the current catalog year.
Returning after Academic Dismissal
Any undergraduate student who has been academically dismissed may continue to study as a part-time non-degree seeking student. Once the student has attained a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher, they may complete the Readmission Application with the Registrar's Office. A graduate student who is dismissed must complete a new application with the Graduate Admissions Office, after the lapse of one semester, and include a petition to the graduate program coordinator describing why he or she will be successful if readmitted.
