Students who have taken a break from Franklin Pierce University will be required to re-apply to the University. Undergraduate students will need to reapply if they take a break of more than 24 consecutive months, and graduate students will need to reapply if they take a break of more than 12 consecutive months.
Students will need to meet the requirements of the Catalog in effect at the time they notify Franklin Pierce of their intent to resume coursework toward degree completion. Notification means registering for a course at Franklin Pierce, or submission of an official transcript reflecting coursework completed at another institution.
All students resuming coursework, whether that work is completed at Franklin Pierce or at another institution, are subject to the Catalog in effect at the time of notification. This Catalog includes program curriculum for the degree as well as college administrative, academic, and financial policies.
Undergraduates who complete an Associate’s degree may continue on for a Bachelor’s degree and remain under the requirements of the Catalog of their Associate’s degree, provided they do not have a break of more than 24 consecutive months.
Returning undergraduate students’ academic standing will be determined by the stated Academic Standing policy in the catalog. Graduate students who wish to be reinstated but are not in good academic standing (CGPA below 3.00) must receive the permission of the Academic Director and the Dean or designee and must develop a satisfactory Learning Contract. Reinstated students with a cumulative grade point average less than 3.00 will be on Academic Probation at the minimum.
