Students who discontinue and then return to attend Judson after an absence of two or more years have broken residence. Students who have broken residence must resubmit all previous academic regionally accredited college and university coursework to Judson University. Students who have previously completed their major, but have broken residence will be required to complete and meet the catalog requirements currently in effect at the time in which they are readmitted. This policy allows students in the work place 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.


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

  1. Submit a completed application for readmission form.
  2. Submit official transcripts of all prior academic coursework completed at regionally accredited colleges and/or universities attended since leaving Judson University to the academic advisor.
  3. Meet with their academic advisor.

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.

Procedure for Dismissed Students

A dismissed student may apply for readmission after one academic year from date of dismissal upon demonstrating an improvement in motivation or preparation for university work; however, readmission by virtue of reapplication is not guaranteed. Dismissed students must:

  • Complete at least 12 hours of approved college-level coursework at a regionally accredited single institution other than Judson University.
  • Earn from there a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or above before being considered for re-admission to Judson University.
  • Adult Undergrad student may petition to begin the readmission process.

Dismissed students who have been readmitted must achieve a semester GPA of at least a 2.00 (1.80 for freshman) each semester to remain at Judson University, since a continued semester GPA of at least a 2.00 is necessary in order to raise the cumulative GPA to 2.00 (which is the minimum required to graduate for most majors). Students dismissed a second time for failing to achieve a continued semester GPA of 2.00 (1.80 for freshman) will be denied any further readmission to the University. The academic standing policy can be found in the academic standing section of the Adult Undergraduate catalog.


Students will be accepted for readmission if they have not had academic dismissals, if their accounts are paid in full, if their financial aid records are satisfactory, and all official transcripts have been received by the Registrar's Office. Returning students will maintain previous academic standing unless transferring in on probationary status. The academic standing policy can be found in the academic standing section of the Adult Undergraduate catalog.

Students can not begin courses at Judson University until the readmission process is complete.

Students accepted for readmission will receive:

  1. Student login letter for the MyJudson Information System.
  2. Readmit letter to Judson University.
  3. An updated evaluation (for broken residence students only) found via the MyJudson Information System.
