Readmission

Students matriculated to a graduate program are expected to be enrolled continuously until the completion of their degree.

A student previously enrolled in a Suffolk University graduate degree program who has been administratively withdrawn because they have not enrolled for two regular semesters, or did not comply with the requirements of a Leave of Absence must apply for re-entry. Please note that the application from Re-Entry is listed separately from the regular semester application. Previous admission to a graduate program does not guarantee automatic re-entry back into that program; in addition, the curriculum to the program of original admission may have changed since last enrollment. Students who have attended universities elsewhere since their last attendance at Suffolk University must submit official transcripts of that study at the time of application for re-entry.

You must meet the following criteria to be eligible for re-entry:

  • A minimum grade-point average of 3.0 in all graduate-level courses completed at Suffolk University, and have been a student in good academic standing.
  • No "Incomplete" grades in all graduate-level courses completed at Suffolk University
  • No outstanding financial balance or financial aid holds with the University
  • The program must be actively enrolling students, and your last semester of enrollment was in the last 5 years

If there are discrepancies regarding any of the above criteria, the student must (a) complete the re-entry online application and then (b) contact one of the following, as appropriate:

  • For programs in the College of Arts & Sciences, contact the specific program director.
  • For programs in the Sawyer Business School, contact Dean Michael Behnam at 617-573-8088.
    • Please note that students who were last enrolled seven or more years ago must completely re-apply. This includes submission of a new online application, valid test scores (if applicable), and all other required credentials. Please see the application requirements for more information.
  • Any student with outstanding charges should contact the Bursar at 617-573-8047, and those students with a Financial Aid hold should contact their Student Financial Services representative.

The University will readmit service members to their educational programs if they are temporarily unable to attend classes or must suspend their studies due to service requirements.
