Students who have left Otis College and wish to re-enroll must apply for readmission. The Readmission Application Form should be submitted before the start of the semester in which the student wishes to enroll. Students must submit official transcripts to the Registration and Records Office for any courses attempted at other institutions during the period of absence.
Readmission is contingent upon approval by the Academic Standing Committee, which reviews all applications for readmission and conducts in-person interviews with readmission candidates, including (but not limited to) those who left the College while on academic probation (term or cumulative grade point average below 2.0), were academically dismissed with the possibility of returning, or were sanctioned at any point by the Student Conduct Committee. Academically dismissed students who are eligible to apply for readmission must apply for readmission must complete any and all conditions outlined in their dismissal letters.
Readmission to Otis College is not guaranteed, nor is there a guarantee of continuation in the major of choice. If a student is requesting a different class standing or major, a review of transcripts by the Liberal Arts and Sciences department and the relevant studio department may be necessary to assess transferable credits. A portfolio review by the studio department may also be required to evaluate preparedness for advanced class standing or entrance to the new major.
