Readmission to the University is necessary for formerly matriculated students who have separated from the University because of an expired temporary academic leave, graduation, or academic dismissal. The readmission process must be completed for you to be matriculated.

Readmitted students are matriculated under the current catalog and are required to meet degree and program requirements in place at the time of readmission.

Special Types of Readmission


Students who wish to complete their degree requirements at another approved academic institution in order to finish their degree at SUNY Brockport must meet the following criteria:

  • Students must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA or higher at SUNY Brockport.
  • Applicants must be within 12 credits of completing their degree*.
  • Degree requirements must be completed within one year.
  • The decision to readmit must be approved by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Office of Registration and Records.
  • Students in this category must not expect financial aid from SUNY Brockport.

* Readmitted students are readmitted under the current catalog and are required
to meet updated degree and program requirements at the time of readmission.


Previously enrolled undergraduate students, who wish to return to SUNY Brockport to complete a second baccalaureate degree, need to submit the Second Degree Readmission Application and provide all necessary transcripts. For more information about earning a second degree, please visit the Second Degree webpage.


Students who have been academically dismissed from the University may apply for readmission at least two academic semesters following their dismissal. Students are strongly encouraged to take at least two academically transferable courses at another college, receiving a 2.5 or better, prior to readmission.

In addition to the Readmission Application, applicants must submit a personal statement addressing:

  • What they have been doing since leaving the University
  • Previous academic experience while at the University
  • Factors that led to their dismissal
  • Changes made to ensure their success if offered readmission

Please be aware that students can only be readmitted once following an academic dismissal.
