Special Circumstances and Policies

Readmission and Reinstatement

Any student who voluntarily withdraws from the college must apply for readmission through the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies. Application deadlines are April 15 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester.

Students who have received a leave of absence status from the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies are exempt from this requirement; however, leave of absence students must notify the Office of the Dean of their intention to return by December 1 for the spring semester and by June 15 for the fall semester.

A student who is dismissed for academic reasons may appeal to the Committee on Academic Status for readmission to the college as outlined in the Academic Information section of the College Catalog.

Early Graduation from High School

Students who are graduating from high school in fewer than four years of attendance are required to have an interview with the Office of Admission. Interviews should be arranged directly with the admission counselor responsible for your high school. Interviews can be conducted in person on or off campus, or through a video platform, such as Skype or Zoom.

Transfer vs. First-Year

Students who have earned at least 12 transferable credits after graduating from high school may apply for admission as a transfer student. Students who earned an associate’s degree in a dual enrollment program while simultaneously earning a high school diploma must apply as first-year students.

For the health and safety of current and future Friars, all campus visits are canceled through June 1. The Office of Admission will be in touch with all prospective students to share ways through which you can continue to learn about Providence College and connect with members of our community.
