Once all the above items have been received, the Registrar's Office will evaluate them for compliance to Judson standards and determine if the student should be admitted. Once admitted to Judson, the student will receive a letter confirming their acceptance. At this point, it is the responsibility of the student to reach out to their Academic Advisor to discuss registration.

Readmission

Policy

Judson students who have been withdrawn or been absent for a semester or more need to apply for readmission. Those who discontinue and then return to Judson after an absence of two or more years have broken residence. They are required to meet the current catalog requirements in effect on their return, and must resubmit all previous academic regionally accredited college and university coursework to Judson University. This policy allows students in the workplace an opportunity to meet the current trends of the field. Updates made to programs may result in an increase in major and degree requirements as well as the completion of additional credit upon their return to Judson University.

Students who have been suspended should first see the Academic Standing section of the catalog.

Procedure

All students wishing to be considered for readmission must submit the following documents:

  • A completed application for readmission
  • Official transcripts of all prior academic coursework completed at regionally accredited colleges and/or universities attended since leaving Judson University to the Enrollment Coach

Judson will evaluate academic and financial aid transcripts, student account standings, and conduct records from all previously attended institutions as well as Judson to ensure good standing before approving a student for readmission. Reapplying and submitting documents does not automatically ensure a student's acceptance. Returning students will maintain previous Judson academic standing unless transferring in on probationary status. The completed readmission application and official documentation will be reviewed within a week of submission to the Registrar's Office and a final evaluation will be completed prior to re-admittance to the University.

Students accepted for readmission will receive notice of their readmission. At this point, it is the responsibility of the student to reach out to their Academic Advisor to discuss registration.
