Office of Student Returns

Return from Disciplinary Dismissal

A student who was dismissed from Duke for disciplinary reasons complete all required disciplinary sanction(s) in order to be eligible to submit an application of readmission. 


If a student is uncertain of their disciplinary status, he or she should contact Dean Stephen Bryan, in the Office of Student Conduct to determine their eligibility to return to Duke. If a student has completed all disciplinary sanctions, the Office of Student Conduct, will forward a notification of eligibility to the Office of Student Returns.

After receiving clearance from the Office of Student Conduct, the student must complete a readmission application and submit it to the Office of Student Returns. Students are advised to carefully read the Checklist for Returning Students.


Return Application Deadlines

Students should determine their targeted return term and plan a submission accordingly. An earlier application will not be accepted and does not benefit you since it is important for the application to be as up-to-date as possible. It is the student's responsibility to make sure the application is complete by the deadline date. Letters of recommendation and other supporting documents from respective individuals should be requested in a timely manner. ONLY COMPLETE applications will be reviewed. Applications are reviewed as expeditiously as possible.  There are three review cycles per year with distinct deadlines.
