Readmission Students - Application for Admission
Readmission is for students who have previously attended PSC but have interrupted their enrollment. All undergraduate students who previously attended Peru State College and withdrew or discontinued their studies for a semester or more (summer session excluded) and all postgraduate students seeking an additional academic program must apply to the Office of Admissions for readmission. Students suspended for academic or disciplinary reasons must also reapply.
Students who discontinue attendance at Peru State College and attend another college or university are considered transfer students and must satisfy the transfer student requirements for readmission.
Students are readmitted for the semester or summer term they wish, provided they left the College in good standing. Students who interrupted their studies and who were on academic probation will be readmitted on probation provided they are in good standing with the College.
Students who are academically suspended will not be considered for readmission for two semesters.
With the exception of teacher education candidates, readmitted students may graduate under the same catalog in effect at the time of their first admission, provided they graduate within seven (7) years of their initial enrollment to Peru State College. For teacher education candidates, absence for longer than one semester may require the student to meet current requirements for degree and certification. If the student took classes from another institution prior to being readmitted, the student is considered a transfer student and will be guided by the current College catalog.
