If you previously attended ESU, was enrolled in an undergraduate degree program and withdrew in good academic, social and financial standing, you are eligible for re-admission. Simply complete and submit the Application for Re-Admission.
We will not be able to re-admit you to the program in which you were previously enrolled if:
- You do not meet the requirements for retention in the program (for example, all teacher certification programs require at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average; some higher)
- The program has reached enrollment capacity at the time your application.
**If you are eligible for re-admission to the University but not to the program of your choice, you will be re-admitted as an "undeclared" student. You will be notified by mail regarding registration procedures.
If you previously attended ESU and were placed on Academic Suspension:
- You must complete and submit the Application for Re-Admission.
- One calendar year must elapse from the time you were placed on Academic Suspension before you are eligible for re-admission.
- Once you have completed the one year suspension, you will be re-admitted but placed on Academic Probation.
- You will be notified by mail regarding registration procedures.
If you previously attended ESU and were placed on Academic Dismissal:
- You must complete and submit the Application for Re-Admission
- Submit a letter of appeal addressed to: The Director of Admission. This letter must include your assessment of why you were unsuccessful in previous academic experiences and why you feel that you will be successful in future academic endeavors.
- The Director of Admission will review your letter and your academic record and either uphold the dismissal, approve re-admission, or request an interview with you in order to gain further information on which to base a decision. The decision of the Director of admission is final.
- You will be notified by mail of the committee's decision.
- Successful candidates will be sent instructions for registration.
**If you have been placed on suspension for reasons other than academics, that suspension must be lifted before any action can be taken on your application for re-admission.
