Satisfactory Academic Progress for Readmitted Students (Financial Aid)

Graduate Students

Graduate students requesting continuance, readmission, or to return from a leave of absence must send an email to the appropriate School.

Undergraduate Students

Continuance following academic separation: Any student who has been placed on academic separation immediately following the current semester, and who wishes to return to Clarkson must request continuance by submitting a Request for Continuance form. This form is available in PeopleSoft, and instructions can be found here.

Readmission: Former students who have been away from Clarkson for at least one semester and didn’t leave due to academic separation must request readmission by submitting a Request for Readmission form.  Former students who have been away from Clarkson for at least one semester following an academic separation must request readmission by submitting a Request for Readmission Following Separation form.

Readmission after a Leave of Absence: Former students who have been away from Clarkson on a Leave of Absence for at least one semester must request readmission by submitting a Request to Return from a Leave of Absence form.

All cases of undergraduate continuance and readmission require concurrent approval of the department chair or program director and of the University's Continuance and Readmission Committee. In cases of a return from an official leave of absence, such approval is assumed but needs to be verified. However, returning to Clarkson will not be allowed if a student is delinquent on a Clarkson loan or has an outstanding tuition balance.

Undergraduate students wishing to apply for readmission should send the appropriate completed form to Student Administrative Services. For the fastest response, email your form to registrar@clarkson.edu from your official Clarkson email address.

You may also mail your form and any supporting documentation to:

Clarkson's Continuance and Readmission Committee
