Readmission to the College

Readmission is considered a privilege and not a right. The following procedures apply to those who were previously matriculated at SUNY Potsdam and who desire readmission (whether they have attended another institution or not):

  1. Contact the Office of the Registrar at (315) 267-2154 (or visit the “Undergraduate Readmission” website at to obtain a readmission application, then forward completed forms and transcripts from any other colleges attended (if applicable).
  2. Applications must be completed by August 7 for the fall semester and January 7 for the spring semester.  Note: Crane students may be required to re-audition prior to readmission to the College if more than one year has elapsed since their last enrollment at Crane.
  3. Decisions on the application for readmission will be sent to the applicant shortly after all necessary forms have been completed and any obligations to the College have been resolved.
  4. Requirements for graduation in effect at the time of the student’s initial matriculation are not binding on the College for more than six years after the date of initial matriculation. If it has been more than six years since their initial matriculation, the student’s records will be evaluated under the current requirements at the time of readmission. Such reevaluation may result in students being required to take additional courses or retake certain courses.
  5. Readmitted students will resume the same academic standing they had when they left the College, except that previously dismissed students will be placed on Academic Probation.

Readmission after Dismissal

Readmission is considered a privilege and not a right. A previously dismissed student seeking readmission should visit or contact the Office of the Registrar well in advance of the semester start date for which readmission is being requested.
