University policies related to withdrawal and readmission apply to students enrolled in the School of Nursing. These policies are found at www.unc.edu/ugradbulletin
Withdrawal from the University is considered withdrawal from the School of Nursing. The student may return to the School of Nursing within one year of withdrawal by meeting University readmission requirements and arranging an alternate study plan with the program director. The Office of Admissions and Student Services in the School of Nursing provides advisement about the readmission process.
Students who have been absent from the School of Nursing for more than one year from last enrollment must meet University readmission requirements and reapply to the School of Nursing. Admission decisions will be based on a competitive application portfolio and available space in courses to be completed. Upon admission, the program director and appropriate faculty will review previous course work and relevant work experiences of the student during the absent period. As a result of this review the student may be required to repeat selected courses or complete competency testing as a part of the alternate plan of study for program completion.
