Returning to Maritime

Apply for Readmission

Students who were previously enrolled at SUNY Maritime College as matriculated, degree-seeking students and have been separated from the college for at least two semesters (except those on official leaves of absence) must submit an application for readmission. The readmission committee meets several times throughout the semester to review applications.

LIcense students

All cadet-students pursuing a U.S. Coast Guard third mate or third assistant engineering license with STCW endorsement as an officer in charge of a watch must have at least three months of required service on vessels of appropriate tonnage or horsepower within the three years immediately preceding the date of application.

Who should apply for readmission?

You should apply for readmission if you:

  • Were academically disenrolled

  • Were dismissed from the regiment of cadets

  • Were disenrolled for conduct reasons

  • Withdrew or took an unofficial leave of absence

  • Took an official leave of absence, but were away for more than two semesters (more than one year)

Academic Disenrollment

Students who were academically disenrolled from the college must meet the following requirements before they apply for readmission:

  • Satisfactory completion of a minimum of 12 transferable college-level credits (grades of C or better) relevant to your degree at a regionally accredited institution

  • Maintain an overall GPA of 2.5 or better

If you were academically disenrolled, you may seen readmission only after two semesters from the disenrollment date (summer counts as one semester)

Leave of Absence

A leave of absence (LOA) is permission to be away from the college temporarily for medical, financial, military or personal reasons, including study at another education institution. Students must file a leave of absence form with the Office of the Registrar. Students may be on leave for up to two consecutive semesters.

Students who return in the semester indicated after an LOA must notify the registrar of their return before the start of the semester. They will need to meet with their advisor to obtain their alternate PIN to register for classes.

Students who do not return from a leave of absence in the semester they indicated will be administratively disenrolled from the college. They will need to apply for readmission through Office of Admissions to return to Maritime College.

Students who withdrew or were administratively disenrolled for failure to return will be evaluated for readmission based on:

  • Performance while at Maritime

  • Work experience and/or performance at other colleges since attending Maritime

  • Duration of time away from Maritime

Regimental Dismissal

Students who were dismissed from the regiment of cadets must submit an application for readmission and met with the hearing board to be considered for readmission. Students should demonstrate satisfactory completion of the requirements set forth in the dismissal letter. The regimental conduct readmission board meets once a semester.

Your application for readmission will be reviewed at the time of your hearing interview.
