A student who has withdrawn from a program for personal reasons (that is, other than dismissal for academic or ethical/professional reasons) may reapply within two years of that withdrawal by sending a letter requesting reinstatement to the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies. The Dean will forward that request to the appropriate departmental admissions committee, which will communicate its decision to the student. In some cases, a student may be asked to submit materials updating the original application, including documentation of any additional academic work. If the withdrawal was granted contingent upon some action(s) on the part of the student, the student also will be required to demonstrate that the recommended steps have been taken. If more than two years have elapsed, the student must reapply by submitting a complete application to the Office of Enrollment Management.
