Returning Students

Previously matriculated students who have not attended Vermont Tech for one term or more (even in instances of courses in a major not being offered) should contact the Office of Admissions and inform them of their intention to return to Vermont Tech. The Office of Admissions will advise the student whether they need to complete a new application or whether they can preregister for the upcoming semester with the Office of the Registrar. This determination is based on length of absence, program requirements, and other academic considerations.

If returning to complete a Practical Nursing program after a year, students must perform a demonstration of all skills learned in the appropriate lab/clinical course from the year before. This must be done prior to reentry. If a student is unable to perform these skills satisfactorily, he or she will not be readmitted to the program. Students who have been out of the program for more than a year must repeat all nursing Principles & Practices courses in the program.

If returning to complete the Respiratory Therapy program after a semester off, students must perform a demonstration of all skills learned in the appropriate labs/clinical course from the year before. This must be done prior to reentry. If a student is unable to perform these skills satisfactorily, he or she will not be readmitted to the program. Students who have been out of the program for more than a year must repeat all RSP courses in the program.
