Undergraduate Readmission Policy

Undergraduate students who are in good academic standing may decide before the beginning of a semester to take a semester off for personal reasons (financial problems, family or health issues, etc.). These students intend to re-enroll at ESU and will not study at another institution during this time. 

Students planning to study or intern abroad, or participate in the International Student Exchange Programs should schedule an appointment with the Coordinator of International Programs to coordinate this process.

Students interested in returning to ESU who have not been enrolled at another institution during their time away from ESU must complete a Readmission Application found at www.esu.edu/apply

Student who have attended another institution since leaving ESU must complete a transfer student application at www.esu.edu/apply

Former students seeking to be readmitted can apply starting July 2016 to be reviewed for the Spring or Fall 2017 semesters. Applications are only available online at www.esu.edu/apply.
