Readmission of Former Students

Readmission of Former Students

Readmission will be based on the current admissions policies. Candidates for readmission must meet current Program requirements. Policies related to the readmission of former students are outlined below:
Students seeking readmission should contact the Office of Admissions at least one semester prior to their intended return. Students dismissed from the University for academic reasons must re-apply and receive approval from the Dean’s Office. Students participating in an approved planned educational leave do not have to re-apply for readmission.
Students who have been withdrawn from the university must apply for readmission unless they are on an approved leave of absence. Returning students will be subject to all the requirements and regulations printed in the Catalog for the year of readmission.

Former Students in Good Standing
With approval of the Dean or Admissions Committee, students who previously left the University in good standing may be readmitted, provided that academic work in the interim period has not altered the student’s scholastic status. If a student has attempted coursework at another institution during his/her absence from Charles R. Drew University, official transcripts of that coursework must be submitted to Charles R. Drew University Office of Admissions for consideration in the readmission process.

Former Students on Probation
Students on probation at the close of their last semester remain on probation if readmitted. If a student has attempted coursework at another institution during his/her absence from Charles R. Drew University, official transcripts of that coursework must be submitted to Charles R. Drew University Office of Admissions.

Former Students Who Were Dismissed
The readmission of a previously dismissed student is by special action only. The University will not consider a student for readmission until one semester of non-attendance has passed and all recommended conditions of readmission have been fulfilled. Readmission action is based upon evidence that the causes of previous low achievement have been removed. This evidence may include grade reports or official transcripts of work completed at other institutions during the student's absence. Students who have been dismissed for ethical or behavioral reasons will generally not be readmitted. Special conditions may apply.

To re-apply, students should:

  1. Complete and submit a Readmission Application (available in the Office of Admissions).
  2. Include a non-refundable application fee of $50 made payable to Charles R. Drew University.
  3. Include official transcripts of any coursework attempted during absence from Charles R. Drew University.

All application documents must be submitted to:

Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science
