Students who attended Stevenson University and were in good academic standing at the end of their last semester at SU must apply for readmission if absent from the University for three or more consecutive semesters. Students must file the Application for Readmission/Reinstatement, downloadable from the Admissions website, with the Admissions Office. If the student attended any other college since leaving Stevenson, he or she must submit an official transcript from each college or university attended. Readmission is not complete until all official documents are received. Students are encouraged to apply early in order to take full advantage of early registration, advising, and course availability. Recommended deadlines for readmission are May 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester. Normal processing time is approximately two weeks.

Students who were absent from the University two semesters or less do not need to apply for readmission and should contact the Registrar's Office directly to register for classes. Official transcripts of any work taken at another institution must be submitted directly to the Registrar's Office.
