If a student misses one or more semesters, will he/she be required to reapply for admissions?
If six (6) semesters have passed since the last date of enrollment, a student will need to submit a new admissions application.

As soon as the student receives the contact information for their assigned advisor, they are strongly encouraged to schedule an appointment with the academic advisor.
