Reinstatement and Readmission


Former Stevenson University students who were academically dismissed at the end of the last semester enrolled must apply for reinstatement to the University and go through the Academic Review Board process. Instructions for petitioning for reinstatement can be found on the Stevenson Admissions webpage under "Returning Students". Petitions must be submitted no later than June 1 for the fall semester and January 2 for the spring semester. Upon receipt of the petition, the Academic Review Board will schedule a hearing, interview the student, and make an appropriate recommendation. Reinstatement is not guaranteed.


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, which can be downloaded 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.

Readmission of Service Members

In compliance with ED 34 C.F.R. 668.18 and the Department of Defense Voluntary Education Partnership Memorandum of Understanding, Stevenson University will promptly readmit students who—because of military service—must be absent from the University for more than 30 consecutive days or for fewer than 30 days if the absence results in a withdrawal from the University. For the purpose of this policy, military service is defined as “service, whether voluntary or involuntary, in the armed forces, including service by a member of the National Guard or Reserve, on active duty, active duty for training, or full-time National Guard duty under federal authority for a period of more than 30 consecutive days under a call or order to active duty of more than 30 consecutive days” (ED 34 C.F.R. 668.18).

Regulations governing the readmission of service members after an absence because of military service can be found in the Code of Federal Regulations. The notification of service and the intent to return to Stevenson required by the federal regulations should be made to Stevenson’s School Certifying Official in the Registrar's Office.
