Returning Student Application Requirements
A student whose attendance at the University is interrupted is required to apply for re-admission. You are considered a returning student if you have enrolled at another institution without prior written approval or failed to enroll in at least one Embry-Riddle course within a two calendar-year period. Students who have been suspended from the University and are seeking re-admission must submit an application to the Office of the Registrar after completing requirements stated in the Criteria for Readmissions page included with the suspension letter.
To be readmitted, returning students must submit:
- Items required of ALL applicants (application, application fee, letters of recommendation)
- Learn more about what is required of all applicants
If a returning student has taken college level courses during this period, transcripts from those schools must be submitted to Embry-Riddle.
Returning students are required to submit a resume with a complete history of academic and extracurricular activities, including accomplishments, activities, awards, honors, employment and other achievements.
- Admission Essay
While an essay is not required for admission, it may help us to assess your qualifications. You may include an essay when you submit your application package.
Essay topics may include:
- Tell us about something you have accomplished over the past year or two that is a source of pride to you. Your topic may include your academic efforts or any activity you feel is important to you: What did you accomplish? Why did you choose to do this activity/effort? How has this accomplishment/activity affected you with regard to your future goals?
- What do you want to accomplish during your years at college?
- Do you have any ideas yet about what you want to accomplish after college? Don't feel you need to have formal plans, but we would enjoy learning about your possible career goals.
