Administrative Withdrawal: Non-Financial

Students returning from an involuntary administrative withdrawal may apply to return to Duke in accordance with the time stipulation and other unique criteria as stated in their official separation letter.

Procedure

A student formerly who wishes to return from an involuntary administrative withdrawal must complete the readmission application and return it (along with all other requested documents) to the Office of Student Returns. If the involuntary administrative withdrawal was influenced by a health concern, the student should complete the medical forms that are included in the return packet as well. If the involuntary administrative withdrawal was the result of misconduct and the disciplinary case has not been resolved, the student is not eligible to apply to return to Duke.

After all readmission materials have been received, the candidate’s completed application packet will be routed to their review committee. A recommendation will be made by their review committee to the Director of Student Returns, who will then inform the candidate of the decision on the application. If the candidate is readmitted, he or she will be returned to active status. Students are advised to carefully follow the Checklist for Returning Students.
