  • Any readmittance to the university is subject to the university’s current admissions requirements.
  • Students will not be readmitted into a program that has been discontinued.
  • Students seeking readmittance after academic suspension must include documentation in their request that indicates improvement in areas of deficiency. A decision will be determined by the Academic Appeals Committee.
  • Readmittance after suspension must be done so in accordance with the process outlined by Student Conduct.
  • Students seeking readmittance after a voluntary medical withdrawal must forward required medical documentation and any other documentation to Health Services or Counseling Services. The documentation must be evaluated and approved as described in Voluntary Medical Withdrawal to determine whether the student is ready to return to the university.

  • International students must be cleared and approved by International Student Services.

  • Reenrolled as a JWU student and will be personally assisted by your Online Admissions Associate
  • Assessed the current tuition rate as well as any holds, which must be cleared prior to being permitted to participate in courses
