Ramapo College welcomes back students who were in good academic and social standing who voluntarily interrupted their attendance. We make the process simple and seamless. First determine if you are a Re-Admit Applicant:

Who is a Re-Admit Applicant?

  1. Re-Admits were degree seeking students who fully matriculated and took classes at Ramapo College and then left for more than two consecutive semesters.
  2. This population also includes students who left on academic action, such as probation and/or suspension and now would like to return to Ramapo.

Who is NOT a Re-Admit Applicant?

  1. Re-Admits are not prior applicants. If you have submitted an application in the past but never attended classes at Ramapo College, then you are NOT a Re-Admit.
  2. Re-Admits are not past non-degree/visiting students. If you have never attended Ramapo College as a fully matriculated degree seeking student, then you are NOT a Re-Admit.
  3. Re-Admits are not fully matriculated students who received their Bachelor’s/Master’s degree at Ramapo College. 

Once you apply and are cleared for re-enrollment – you can set up a meeting with an advisor and register. You may return in the Summer, Fall, Spring or Winter!
