How does Platt College define reinstatement?
Students who withdraw or are withdrawn by the College are eligible for reinstatement. Platt College defines reinstatement as a return to the nursing program where the student left off in their nursing program. Students who return for reinstatement are not counted once again as a new student in the program. Students who are eligible for reinstatement are not required to go back through a readmission committee or an orientation to return. While they may be required to meet with the Dean or Associate Dean of Nursing to create an academic plan of return to ensure success in the nursing program, they simply return to the program where they left off.
A student may only be reinstated once and may not be considered for additional reinstatements. In addition, if a former student is accepted for reinstatement and they do not progress in the program, they may not be considered for future reinstatement.
A student that is reinstated after termination for eligible criteria unrelated to academic performance (attendance, financial standing, clinical compliance, not returning from LOA or suspension) resumes the program under their prior academic course record.
A student who is reinstated after termination from the program for not meeting requirements for program progression under Policy 02:24:00 Satisfactory Academic Progress, which includes exceeding the maximum enrollments in a course or exceeding the maximum failures across the program may NOT have any new course failure(s) after reinstatement. If the student fails upon return to the reinstatement, they are permanently terminated.
For the purpose of this policy, a "student" is defined as an individual that has progressed past the add/drop date of any quarter.
Are you eligible for reinstatement? 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 for reinstatement.
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 reinstatement, students must continually make monthly tuition payments or pay in full to avoid permanent program termination.
