Off-Campus Programs Students. A student whose eligibility to enroll (matriculation) has been canceled by ProfEd for academic reasons may apply for rematriculation to the appropriate Prof-Ed program director.
For students dismissed from ProfEd, a written request and a personal interview may be required. Supporting documents may also be requested. A written request for rematriculation should be submitted to Center Services, ProfEd, Mount Pleasant, MI 48859. Students requesting rematriculation should submit all materials at least two months prior to the start of the term in which the student is planning to enroll.
Mount Pleasant Campus Students. A student whose eligibility to enroll (matriculation) has been cancelled for academic rea- sons from the Mount Pleasant campus, but is seeking admission to Off-Campus Programs must first be rematriculated by the Committee on Rematriculation, in the Academic Advising and Assistance Office in Mount Pleasant. Following rematriculation to CMU, the student’s admission to Off-Campus Programs will be considered.
Students dismissed from the Mount Pleasant campus must sub- mit a written application (available from the Academic Advising and Assistance Office) and payment of the rematriculation application fee. A personal interview is required and supporting documents may also be requested. Interviews for students seeking to return for the Fall Semester will be held in May and June; interviews for students seeking to return for Summer semester will be held in April; readmittance for Spring Semester creates course schedul- ing difficulties for the student and is not advisable. Last minute interviews are not conducted.
Normally, petitions for rematriculation will not be considered until 12 months after the student has been dismissed. A student who has been dismissed twice will be rematriculated only under extraordinary circumstances, and consideration for rematriculation will not be considered for at least 24 months after the student’s second dismissal.
Permission to return is not automatic, but is based upon the merits of each case. Students will be expected to show academic improvement at the community college level. Students will be expected to show solutions to difficulties that prevented them from achieving academic competence.
Concurrent Enrollment as a Central Michigan University Graduating Senior
An undergraduate student may be permitted to register concur- rently for graduate credit for the semester or session in which requirements will be completed for a baccalaureate degree, provided the following conditions are met: (1) the student will be taking no more than 12 undergraduate credits during the semester of concurrent registration; (2) during the semester of concurrent registration, the student enrolls in all courses required for gradua- tion; (3) the student’s total credit load (graduate and undergradu- ate courses) will not exceed 15 credits during the semester of concurrent registration; (4) the student has an undergraduate grade point average of at least 2.7 or optionally, 3.0 in the most recently completed 60 semester hours of graded coursework toward the bachelor’s degree; and (5) the student is admitted to the programs; the admission may be conditional or nondegree. Students who do not comply with the conditions of concurrent admission may be dropped from their graduate classes. Students who fail to graduate at the end of the concurrently-enrolled se- mester will not be permitted to continue in their graduate program until all requirements for the undergraduate degree have been met. Exceptions to these policies can be granted under any of the following circumstances: (1) students who have completed all requirements for the bachelor’s degree EXCEPT student teaching may be granted concurrent status prior to student teaching if they meet conditions 4-5 above; (2) students admitted to a combined
BA/MA or BS/MS program at CMU may be granted concurrent status if they have completed at least 86 undergraduate credits and are recommended by the Department of Health Promotion and Rehabilitation for admission to the Physical Therapy program. Furthermore, students may appeal to the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies for a policy exception to grant admission as concurrent students.
Application for Admission to Graduate Study
Applicants must have earned a four-year baccalaureate or equivalent degree from an institution which has received regional accreditation or recognized standing (recognized at the time the student attended). The Application for Admission form should be completed online (www.cel.cmich.edu/future/apply/default.html) or submitted to the program center office with the appropriate application fee. A student should request that the registrar of ALL undergraduate and graduate institutions attended send one official transcript directly to ProfEd. After all materials have been received and evaluated, the student will be sent official notification of admission status. Exceptions to the admission policy and/or review of admission policy rests with the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies.
While your application and transcripts are being evaluated, you may enroll for up to six (6) graduate credits as a nondegree student. Those students who have graduated from a college or university of recognized standing, have a cumulative undergradu- ate grade point average of at least 2.7 overall or 3.0 in the last half of their coursework, and meet the admission requirements of the department may be granted regular or conditional admis- sion status. When there are extenuating circumstances, those students who graduated from a college or university of recognized standing with a cumulative undergraduate grade point average of below 2.7 may be granted conditional admission by the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies. Such students must include a resume with their application.
A student who does not register for a class within one year of notification of admission is placed on a “no-show” status. If he or she should wish to attend in the future, a new application following current requirements must be made, and the current application fee must be paid.
A student who does not register for a class within three years of completion of a previous class will be placed on “inactive” status. If the student wishes to enroll in subsequent courses, he or she should submit another application and again supply appropriate transcripts.
Admission of ProfEd Faculty Members and Administrators: Faculty members and administrators in ProfEd may pursue a graduate degree or certificate through off-campus programs pro- vided he or she is in compliance with the Academic Senate policy on “Faculty Rank and Pursuit of a Graduate Degree” and has permission from the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies.
Types of Graduate Admission
Central Michigan University has five types of admission status which may be granted to qualified applicants at the graduate level: regular, conditional, provisional, nondegree, and concurrent. All references to grade points and grade point averages are based on a four-point scale. Admission is valid only if you register for coursework as a graduate student within one calendar year of your effective admission date. Your official admission date is the date on your first admission letter granting you regular, conditional, provisional or nondegree admission.
Students who have an admission status will be allowed to transfer to on-campus programs only if they are accepted by the relevant department and the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies. If you are uncertain of your status, you should request clarification
from ProfEd’s Admissions Specialist, 800-950-1144. (continued)
