Students Seeking Readmission

Students who previously attended the college may need to update admission information. This is generally required if a student has not been in attendance for two or more academic years, but may also be required in other ­instances. If this is necessary, a new application must be completed and proof of residency provided upon request. The application fee will be waived.

READMISSION TO THE CLINICAL PORTION OF NURSING AND ALLIED HEALTH PROGRAMS–Readmission to a clinical nursing or allied health program is contingent upon specific criteria, submission of a supplemental readmission application, and available space. Readmit students may have to complete various curricular components and demonstrate competencies through examination. The Accelerated RN Program does not have a readmit option. Former Accelerated RN students may seek readmission through the Traditional RN Program. Students should consult the clinical student handbook for their program to determine procedures for re-entry to clinical coursework. For further information, contact the Office of Admissions and Advising.

REINSTATEMENT–Students who are suspended from the college for academic reasons as of a specific semester, and who want to return for that semester, must submit a letter requesting approval to do so to the Reinstatement Committee. This letter and any supporting information should be submitted to HCC’s Office of Retention Services. Students who were suspended and have been out for one or more semesters may also have to update their admissions information. They must also make an appointment to meet with the Retention Coordinator. (All students who are in academic suspension status must contact Retention Services in the Learning Assistance Center, 443-518-1320 in either case.) See Academic Standards for more information (including academic warning, probation and suspension). Students who have not been enrolled for five or more academic years may be eligible for academic amnesty.
