Readmission and Reentry

READMISSION

A student who cancels his or her application for a previous term may apply for readmission by contacting his or her Enrollment Advisor. If the student’s application is over one year old, a new application must be completed. Once received, official transcripts will remain on file and do not need to be resent unless additional coursework has been completed at the institution. A student is required to update any information that has changed since the previous application was submitted with the request for readmission (Name, address, phone number, email address, or additional transfer institutions). The student will be notified via email from the Enrollment Advisor regarding the readmission decision.

Students readmitted to Grace must fulfill the requirements of the catalog in effect for the semester of readmission.

The Administration reserves the right to deem a student ineligible to return based on academic ineligibility, behavioral concerns, or student account delinquency.

REENTRY

A student who has withdrawn from the University who desires to return to the institution may contact an Enrollment Advisor, Academic Advisor, or complete the Re-Entry Application to apply for re-entry into Grace Christian University. The Registrar’s Office will review the application for re-entry and determine eligibility based on the information provided, current academic status, and current financial status with the institution. The advisor will be notified via email regarding the decision. An Advisor will communicate any conditions for re-entry or the re-entry decision to the student. The Advisor will assist the student in the process of returning. Upon re-entry, the student will be provided access to their student email, student portal, Blackboard, and an updated education plan. Military service members who cease attendance at Grace Christian University due to service requirements may request to be readmitted after they return from service. Grace Christian University will readmit the student into the next available classes within the program, with the same academic status that they had when they last attended.

• Students must notify the Grace Academic Advising Office as soon as possible when they need to stop attending classes due to service requirements.

• Students must notify the Grace Academic Advising Office of their intent to return to school within three years of completion of their period of service.

• The cumulative length of the absence and of all previous absences from the school for military service may not exceed five years.

A student’s readmission rights terminate in the case of a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge, general court-martial, federal or state prison sentence, or other reasons as described in 34 CFR 668.18(h).

The Administration reserves the right to deem a student ineligible to return based on academic ineligibility, behavioral concerns, or student account delinquency.
