Readmission

Readmission after Dismissal

Students who have been dismissed from Stanbridge University may apply for readmission. All readmission requests must be made in writing to the Director of Student Services, with a copy to the Program Director. A student who is requesting readmission may be required to attend a readmission meeting with various members of the administration and instruction teams. The Office of the President, Office of Instruction, Office of Student Services, and Program Director will evaluate each student’s case to make a decision regarding readmission, and they will set forth guidelines for said student’s readmission. The decision and subsequent guidelines, if any, will be communicated in specific detail by the Student Services Officer to the student via email within three (3) weeks of the conclusion of readmission meeting.

Readmission after dismissal will require payment of a non-refundable Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) assessment even if a STRF assessment was paid for a previous enrollment.  If a tuition change occurred after the original enrollment and before the readmission enrollment, the new tuition amount will be used to calculate the amount due for readmission enrollment. Readmission is dependent on sufficient space in the cohort the student desires.

Readmission after Dismissal for Attendance Reasons

Students dismissed for clinical or theory course attendance deficiencies may apply for readmission at the university in a new track of their program of study.  If readmitted, students dismissed for attendance deficiencies will resume their studies at the beginning of the course from which they were dismissed.  Students will be financially responsible for retake tuition for hours of theory and clinical education associated with courses not previously satisfactorily completed and being retaken.

Readmission after Dismissal for Academic Reasons

Students dismissed for failing to remediate an unsatisfactory course grade may apply for readmission in another track in their program, commencing at the beginning of the failed course.  Students will be financially responsible for retake tuition for hours of theory and clinical education associated with courses not previously satisfactorily completed and being retaken.

Students dismissed for failing four (4) courses may apply for readmission in a new track at the point of the term from which they were dismissed.   Students repeating coursework in a required repeat of a term are financially responsible only for prorated tuition for repeated hours of theory and the hours of clinical education associated with courses not satisfactorily completed.

Failure to pass a course after multiple attempts is an indication that a student is unable to comprehend or learn the knowledge required to perform the occupational tasks afforded by the education, making it necessary for Stanbridge University to dismiss the student without the opportunity for readmission.

Readmission after Dismissal for Unsafe Nursing /Fieldwork/Clinical Education or Clinical Practice Reasons

Students dismissed for reasons of unsafe nursing/fieldwork/clinical education or clinical practice reasons may apply for readmission to Stanbridge University.  Each case will be evaluated individually, based on the severity of the actions that resulted in the student’s dismissal.  Students may be refused readmission, allowed to re-enroll with additional conditions specified in writing as part of the enrollment contract, or re-enrolled without conditions.  Students will be financially responsible for retake tuition for hours of theory and clinical education associated with courses not previously satisfactorily completed and being retaken.

Readmission after Dismissal for Conduct Reasons

Students dismissed for conduct infractions may apply for readmission to Stanbridge University.  Each case will be evaluated individually, based on the severity of the actions that resulted in the student’s dismissal.  Students may be refused readmission, allowed to re-enroll with additional conditions specified in writing as part of the enrollment contract, or re-enrolled without conditions.  Students will be financially responsible for retake tuition for hours of theory and clinical education associated with courses not previously satisfactorily completed and being retaken.

Readmission after Withdrawal

Students who have withdrawn from Stanbridge University may apply for readmission.  The Director of Student Services, Dean of Students, and Program Administration will evaluate each student’s case to make a decision regarding readmission, and they will set forth guidelines (if necessary) for said student’s readmission.  Readmission after withdrawal will require payment of a non-refundable Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) assessment even if a STRF assessment was paid for a previous enrollment.  If a tuition change occurred after the original enrollment and before the readmission enrollment, the new tuition amount will be used to calculate the amount due for readmission enrollment.  Readmission is dependent on sufficient space in the cohort the student desires to join.

Denial of Readmission Appeal Process

Stanbridge University students have the right to appeal a denial of readmission. There are two  levels of appeal for a denial of readmission.  Students who have been denied readmission may submit a letter of appeal to the Office of Instruction at appeal.instruction@stanbridge.edu. The letter of appeal will specify the reason for dismissal, the reason(s) for denial of readmission cited by the readmission committee, and the rationale for the appeal.  An unfavorable decision at the Office of Instruction level may be appealed to the Office of the President at appeal.president@stanbrigde.edu.  Decisions by the Office of the President are final and not subject to further university appeal. Students whose denial of readmission is upheld by the president may not apply for readmission.
