Readmission of Former Degree Candidates

Readmission applications are available for students who were previously enrolled at West Chester University as degree candidates. To file a readmission application the student must have completed at least one semester of course work as a degree candidate but has been separated from the University for two or more consecutive semesters, regardless of reason.

All readmission applications, including all supporting documents, are to be filed by August 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester.

Instructions

Any student who was previously enrolled in a degree program at West Chester University and has not attended the University for two or more consecutive semesters, must follow the outlined procedures to be considered for readmission to the University.

  1. Complete, sign and date your application. Return to:
    • Office of Admissions
      Emil H. Messikomer Hall
      West Chester University
      West Chester, PA 19383
  2. Send your $45.00 check (payable to West Chester University) and completed application fee form to the Office of the Bursar.
  3. If you have completed college course work at another institution(s) since leaving West Chester, have an official transcript(s) sent to the Office of Admissions. If approved for readmission, a copy of the transcript(s) will be forwarded to the Office of the Registrar for an evaluation of transfer credit.
  4. If you left the University with less than a 2.0 cumulative grade point average or were dismissed for disciplinary reasons, you must also submit a personal statement and include:
    • the factors which contributed to your poor academic performance while enrolled at West Chester
    • a brief overview of your experiences since leaving the institution
    • if applicable, circumstances resulting in your dismissal for disciplinary reasons

Upon receipt of all requested materials, your application will be forwarded to the Director of Admissions for review and a final decision regarding your eligibility for readmission.

Important Information

  1. Recommended deadline dates for completed readmission applications and all supporting documentation:
    • August 1 for the Fall semester
    • December 1 for the Spring semester
  2. Students are readmitted into the program of study in which they had previously been enrolled. If you indicate a desire to change your major, a form will be included with your acceptance letter. There is no guarantee that a change of curriculum will be approved. Students must meet the specific departmental requirements for admission to the program of their choice and all required signatures must be on the form in order to process the change. It is the student's responsibility to return the "Change of Curriculum" form to the Office of Admissions prior to the start of the semester.
  3. All students are readmitted as commuters.
  4. Students will receive scheduling information at the time of acceptance. Candidates for readmission are ineligible for pre-scheduling.
  5. If you have a disability that you have not previously disclosed and wish to do so, please contact the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (OSSD) at 610-436-2564. They will inform you of the appropriate documentation to submit and the assistance and support services available to students with disabilities. If you believe that a disability had an effect on your previous course work at the University and wish to have that fact considered, please include that information in your personal statement. You may also wish to seek the support of the OSSD in the readmission process.
