When you have taken time off from the College for any reason, you must follow specific procedures by certain deadlines in order to return. If you are returning for the fall semester, this form must be submitted by March 15. If you are returning for the spring semester, this form must be submitted by November 1. If you miss these deadlines, you will jeopardize your housing and your pre-registration. You won't be guaranteed on-campus housing, you may be put on a wait-list to be housed after everyone who did meet the deadline, and your off-campus application may be denied. You will not receive information about pre-registration or be able to pre-register if you do not submit this form by the appropriate deadline.
f you're returning for the Fall 2014 semester, please submit this form by March 15, 2014.
If you're returning for the Spring 2015 semester, please submit this form by November 1, 2014.
This web form works best using Firefox or Safari web browers. Using Internet Explorer is possible, but less efficient, as it may require additional steps. If you're having difficulty submitting the form, contact the Dean of Students Office at email@example.com.

- If you were on academic warning or academic probation status at the time of your departure from the College, you will remain on warning or probation for at least the first semester after your return. At the end of that semester, depending on your academic performance, you may be returned to good standing, continued on academic warning, moved to academic probation, or academically dismissed.
- If you left the College on academic dismissal, you will be placed on academic warning for at least the first semester after your return. At the end of that semester, depending on your academic performance, you may be returned to good standing, continued on warning, moved to probation, or academically dismissed.

- The Registrar’s Office sends out information on the pre-registration process to students in early November (for students returning in the Spring semester) and early April (for students returning in the Fall semester).
- Only those returning students who submit the on-line readmission form by the designated deadline (November 1 for student returning in the Spring; March 15 for student returning in the Fall) will receive pre-registration information and be permitted to pre-register. Students who do not submit the on-line readmission form by the deadline will not be permitted to pre-register and will have to wait until the regular registration and add/drop periods at the beginning of each semester.
- For students returning to the College for the Spring semester, assignments of on-campus housing will not begin until early January, when full information of Spring vacancies is available. E-mail notification of your housing assignment will be sent out in mid-January. At that time, you may also contact our Administrative Assistant for Residential Life at (413) 542-2161 with any questions about housing assignments for the Spring.
- For students returning to the College for the Fall semester, housing assignments will be available immediately following the room draw process in the preceding Spring.

Please note that you should apply simultaneously for residency in a theme house and for regular housing through room draw. Theme house decisions will be announced in mid-March. If you are accepted into a theme house, you will be removed from room draw; otherwise, you will be included in room draw for regular on-campus housing.
