Re-Admission Process

All former students seeking readmission after withdrawal or suspension from Wilmington College must complete an Application for Readmission (available in the Admission Office) to Wilmington College. In addition, official transcripts of additional academic study and a Transfer Recommendation Form (available on the website) completed by the Dean of Students at the most recent institution, must be forwarded to the Office of Admission.

Application for readmission to the College should be made well in advance. Consideration for any term may be deferred until the following semester if the Application for Readmission is received less than two (2) weeks before the beginning of a semester or if there is a balance remaining on the student's account.

To accept an offer of readmission to the College, send a $100.00 non-refundable deposit ($150 for residential students) by May 1st for fall enrollment or by the date specified in your letter of acceptance.

Fresh Start Program

Fresh Start is a second chance to earn a baccalaureate degree with forgiveness for past performance. This readmission option recognizes that maturity shifts priorities and improves the chances for successfully completing a degree program.

A person is eligible for the Fresh Start option after five (5) consecutive calendar years of absence from Wilmington College. A Fresh Start will be granted upon readmission if requested by the applicant on the Application for Admission. Upon readmission under Fresh Start, course work begins with no cumulative grade point average. Previous Wilmington College courses with grades of "C-" or above will fulfill requirements for a degree unless a higher grade is specifically required by the student's major, minor, or admission to a program, or unless dated materials no longer fulfill requirements, but the quality points will not be computed in the GPA. Readmission under Fresh Start places a person in good academic standing. It is important to note that readmission under Fresh Start does not erase a student's academic history in meeting satisfactory academic progress for financial aid purposes. Most students readmitted under Fresh Start will not be eligible to receive financial aid until the minimum standards of satisfactory academic progress for financial aid purposes are met. Students interested in obtaining financial aid funding are strongly encouraged to consult with the Director , Student One Stop to determine financial aid eligibility. A Fresh Start participant may earn baccalaureate honors. Fresh Start may be used only once.
