Readmission Request Form
- Students who are terminated from a nursing course (academic failure, voluntary withdrawal or instructor drop) may apply for readmission. However, readmission is not guaranteed.
- A student may have two admissions into the ADN program, the PNE program or Advanced Placement.
- If the student has been out of the program for more than one year or was unsuccessful in their first nursing course, the student will be required to reapply to the program and follow the admission process as outlined (See SCC College Catalog – Admission to Nursing Programs). All current admission criteria will apply to those wishing to re-enter.
- Students will not be eligible for readmission when curriculum changes have been made. Students will be required to restart the program from the beginning.
- Students who exit the nursing curriculum in good academic standing and seek readmission will be given admission priority over transfer students or students who were academically unsuccessful.
- Students who are dismissed for clinical safety issues or behavior problems unresponsive to treatment will not be considered for readmission.
- If a student has been unsuccessful at another college more than one time or has an unsatisfactory clinical grade, he or she will not be admitted into the same program.
- Readmission to the nursing program for those students who have been out of the program less than one year is based on space availability as well as student performance on the required comprehensive examination and GPA. The admission points count system will be used if more students re-apply than space allows.
- When a student desires readmission who has been out of the program less than one year, the following procedure must be followed. The student will:
- Follow regular institution readmission policy as stated in the college catalog.
- Submit a “Readmission Request Form” to the Division Chair of Health Programs at least 8 weeks prior to the beginning of the semester in which entrance is desired. Forms can be obtained from the secretary of the nursing department.
- Have a GPA of 2.0 or higher.
In addition, the student must fulfill one of the following requirements:
- Pass a comprehensive examination from the content of the course prior to the one to which the student is requesting readmission with a minimum grade of 80 and demonstrate competency of skills required in nursing courses prior to the one to which the student is requesting readmission.
- Students may retake the course prior to the one to which they are requesting readmission for a higher grade. However, enrollment in this course does not guarantee readmission to the program. For readmission, students must earn a grade of “B” or higher in the course or an 80 on the final exam, and demonstrate competency of skills required for the course. Also, admission to this class is based on space availability.
- Students may request to audit the nursing course in the sequence prior to the one to which they are requesting readmission. However, enrollment for auditing this class does not guarantee readmission to the program. For readmission students must earn a grade of “B” or higher in the course and satisfactory demonstration of nursing skills. Also, admission to this class is based on space availability.
