Deferral of Admissions & Readmission
Admitted students who wish to delay their entrance may do so for one semester. Students may request a deferral by contacting the Office of Graduate Admissions. Students who do not request a deferral must reapply with the Office of Graduate Admissions when they are ready to begin their studies.
Readmission is required for any graduate student who did not register and complete a course at St. John Fisher College for more than three consecutive semesters or was accepted but did not enroll or update his or her application status. Program directors consider every readmission request on its merits and retain the right to grant or deny admission for a future term.
The process for readmission is:
Application: Complete and submit the online application for the semester you are applying for.
Transcripts: Submit official transcripts from the each college and/or university that you attended since you last attended St. John Fisher College.
Note: Previous St. John Fisher College students may indicate on their application permission to allow the Graduate Admissions Office to request their official Fisher transcript from the Registrar’s Office.
Personal Goals Statement: Applicants should provide information about yourself, your goals and plans for the future, and reason for graduate study in your chosen field. Applicants should also indicate why they left the graduate program and why they would like to return at this time.
Resume: Applicants should submit an up to date resume
Meeting: Readmission applicants may be required to meet with the program director to discuss educational goals, their decision to return to St. John Fisher College, and to map out a long range academic plan.
Once the readmission application is complete, it will be forwarded to the program director for review. Admissions decisions are mailed to applicants within three weeks after the application is complete
