Returning Student Readmission Policy

Students returning from a leave of absence (LOA) will need to fill out a readmission form along with a $500 non-refundable deposit. 

Readmission form deadlines

  • If returning for spring semester: Readmission form must be submitted prior to the third Friday of November of the prior year (e.g. A student who wishes to return for the spring 2009 semester must submit his/her readmission form by Friday, November 21, 2008)
  • If returning for fall semester: Readmission form must be submitted prior to first Friday of March of the same year.  (e.g., A student who wishes to return for the fall 2009 semester must submit his/her readmission form by Friday, March 6, 2009).

Students returning from an LOA are responsible for registering for classes by the registration deadline. Students who do not register for classes before the registration deadline will be charged a $100 late registration fee.

Students returning from an LOA who have a tuition balance are subject to the rules regarding overdue tuition balances in place at that time.

If applicable, students returning from an LOA within one year may have their scholarship money reinstated. After one year, students will have to re-apply for admission and scholarship.

Students who wish to receive federal financial aid will need to file the proper paperwork prior to the Readmission deadlines listed above. If necessary they can fill out a new FAFSA by going to www.fafsa.ed.gov. Students who fail to file by the deadline will not receive federal aid. Students can call the Financial Aid office at (617) 912-9147 for further guidance.

Students returning from an LOA that need housing and/or meal plan should contact the Housing and Student Life Office at (617) 912-9165 to inquire about availability and deposits needed. Students who wish to partake in the fitness plan will need to contact the Wellness Coordinator at (617) 912-9260.

Students LOA that exceed one calendar year from date of request will have their status changed to “Withdrawal.”

It is the student’s responsibility to contact all the necessary offices (Registrar, Bursar, Financial Aid, Housing, Library, etc) to make sure they have completed all the necessary documents, are not on any institution holds and are in good academic standing in order to return to school. For those students who are on a Medical LOA, please contact the VP of Student Affairs at (617) 912-9121.
