Withdrawals from Traditional, Advanced Entry, Accelerated Nursing Programs

Students who do not register for nursing coursework within two academic terms (fall/spring) will be administratively withdrawn from the nursing program so that another student may be placed in that spot. They must wait one calendar year before reapplying to the nursing program and must following the readmission process.

The student may also be tested for safety in a clinical setting before being readmitted. Students are free to continue taking courses to satisfy their AU degree requirements while awaiting readmission to the nursing program.

Students who voluntarily withdraw from the nursing program may reapply for admission wtihout waiting one full calendar  year and will be considered on a case by case basis. Readmission to the nursing program is possible with the following guidelines:

  • Students can continue to take AU core requirements while they await readmission.
  • A withdrawal of up to two semesters is available for students who need to leave the nursing program for personal reasons but intend to return to the nursing program (i.e. medical or family problem); however, permission for this must be granted by the CONHS Admission, Progression, and Retention Committee.
