Reentering Students

PTC encourages students who have withdrawn from an academic program to reapply to complete their studies and successfully graduate. To apply for reentry, complete the online form below and we will contact you about your potential readmission.

The reapplication form includes:

  1. Your reason for withdrawal.
  2. What conditions/situations have changed that will allow you to continue successfully in the program.
  3. Your agreement to comply with the education plan and progress requirements established between you and your academic chair.

Reentry Tuition

If you are approved for reentry, your tuition cost will be the current tuition for the program you are reentering minus the tuition you have already been charged.

Changing From a Degree Program to a Certificate Program.

Students reentering into a certificate program, who previously attended a degree program, will only receive credit for classes that are transferable and completed successfully. There will be no tuition credit given for classes that do not transfer into the certificate program. As a reentering student you must pay for necessary books and supplies.

Academic Probation

If you are requesting return to college and you were under academic probation or previous academic suspension while at PTC, you may be required to write a letter to the Vice President of Academic Affairs for approval to return to school. You must comply with the requirements of satisfactory academic progress on a quarter-by-quarter basis. Once you have reestablished your satisfactory academic progress to allowable levels you may apply for student financial aid.
