How does Platt College define readmission?
Students who withdraw from the nursing program may reapply for admission through the committee process. Reapplication does not guarantee acceptance. In order to apply for readmission, the student must be deemed eligible. If a student is accepted for readmission to the program, they count as if they are a new student regardless of where they continue study in terms of college headcount.
Are you eligible to reapply to the nursing program? Answer the following questions below to determine your eligibility.
QUESTION 1: ARE YOU CURRENT IN YOUR FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS TO PLATT COLLEGE?
If you answer NO-you are not cleared to reapply.
A student who is in active collections (either by the College or with a third-party collections) is not eligible to reapply until the financial hold has been removed.
For proof of clearance, students must meet with Geoff Craver, Accountant ([email protected]).
After readmission to the program, students must continually make monthly tuition payments or pay in full to avoid permanent program termination.
QUESTION 2: ARE YOU CURRENTLY IN QUARTER 6 OR LESS?
If you are currently in quarter 6 or less you may reapply. If you are in quarter 7 or above, then please see the reinstatement policy.
