A student must apply for readmission if he or she has been away from the university for two years, or four or more consecutive full-length semesters (12 or more 8-week terms for Florida Tech Online students and excluding Melbourne campus and extended studies summer terms) or who has attended another institution during an absence from the university. If readmission is approved, the degree requirements in place at the time of readmission, or later with academic approval, must be met. A student is not considered absent from the university during a period of study at another institution if a Request to Study at Another Institution form was submitted and approved before enrollment for the other institution’s courses. A student who has been away from the campus for less than four semesters (12 8-week terms for Florida Tech Online students) and who has not attended any other college or university may register for class without filing an application for readmission.
A student who leaves the university for military service will be readmitted with the same academic status he or she had when last in attendance at Florida Tech. This rule is binding as long as the student’s length of absence from the institution has not exceeded five years.
For students attending under the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC), breaks-in-attendance of two years or fewer will not invalidate the Student Agreement, nor will the student’s activity be defined by taking courses exclusively at the home college.
Appeal procedures for students who have been academically dismissed and seek reinstatement are described under “Probation and Dismissal.”.
