All students withdrawn or taking a leave of absence from Guilford who subsequently wish to return as a student are required to re-apply through admissions. Academically suspended students may apply for readmission after one semester. Applications for Readmission are available on the Admissions page of the Guilford College website under the “Returning Students” link, https://www.guilford.edu/admissions/ apply/application-for-readmission.
After reviewing a student’s application for readmission, admissions may, at its discretion, refer the application to an associate academic dean for advice.
However, if an applicant that is applying for readmission is otherwise admissible but had been academically suspended from the College or has a pending academic honor code charge, the admission office must refer the person’s application to an associate academic dean for her/his approval before the person may be offered readmission. An associate academic dean may either grant or deny such approval with or without soliciting advice from the Readmission Advisory Group.
If an applicant that is applying for readmission is otherwise admissible but had been suspended or dismissed from the College for judicial violations, has a pending judicial charge, or left the College with a medical withdrawal, the relevant admission office must first refer the person’s application to the associate dean of students before then forwarding the application to an associate academic dean for approval. In considering an application for readmission, an associate academic dean and the Readmission Advisory Group may use information provided by the associate dean of students, and any other appropriate College officials. For an application following a medical withdrawal, an associate academic dean and the Readmission Advisory Group may also consult the director of student health and/or the director of counseling services.
Readmission is not guaranteed. Students readmitted to Guilford return in the same academic standing as they earned in their final semester attending Guilford. If readmitted following academic suspension, a student will be required to satisfy the conditions of good academic standing. A student returning from academic suspension may become eligible again for financial aid; the returning student must file an appeal with the Office of Financial Aid. A readmitted student is permitted to resume athletic participation if she/he meets all athletic eligibility standards.
