Welcome back! We hope your return to Rensselaer goes as smooth as possible. Here are suggestions to help you along the way. Feel free to contact our office if you run into any difficulty or if you have questions.
All readmitted students will meet within the first two weeks of the semester with their Dean. This is a very important meeting and failure to schedule may result in holds on your account or rescinding your readmission. At this meeting we will discuss your leave and make a plan for your successful reacclimatization to campus.
Your readmission may have conditions like providing final transcripts from other institutions, meeting with your Class Dean regularly, or making Health Center or Counseling Center appointments, etc. Be sure to address these as soon as possible.
If you live in a residence hall, this will be updated for you. Be sure your permanent address is accurate.
