Students approved for readmittance will be assessed the current tuition rate and are responsible for any changes to their program of study that may have occurred during their period of absence. If the break in enrollment exceeds one year or more, the student's program of study may follow the requirements listed in the current year catalog. A review of previously awarded transfer credit will also be conducted and may be adjusted.
Students whose absence from the university was necessitated by reason of service in the US Armed Forces, including the National Guard or Reserve, should note such information on their readmittance request.
