Matriculation and Status

Admission to the College
Upon completion of the admission process, students will be admitted, admitted under specified conditions, or denied admission to the College. Admissions standards and required documentation are covered in the Admissions section.

Readmission to the College
Students who have not registered for classes for four or more consecutive quarters and are seeking readmission must meet the academic requirements in place at the time of readmission. They must follow the admissions process for new students and are subject to the requirements of the most recent catalog in use upon their return. Students interested in readmission to Kendall should speak with the Admissions Department. If students are applying for readmission and are not in good academic standing, they are required to submit a statement that explains the reasons for their dismissal and how they will avoid the same circumstances if readmitted. Students applying for readmission who were previously expelled for disciplinary reasons may not be eligible for readmission and should contact the Dean of Student Affairs for more information.

Associate Degree Graduates Continuing to Baccalaureate Degree
Students who are admitted to, and successfully complete, an associate degree program may continue and earn a baccalaureate degree in the same field if such a baccalaureate program is being offered or if a crossover program exists.

This continuation, however, should begin with the academic term following the term in which the associate degree is completed. Students who complete their degrees and do not return in the next academic term must follow the requirements in place at the time of their return. Students wishing to complete a baccalaureate degree in a field other than that of their associate degree program must meet the requirements from the catalog in use at the time of their entry into baccalaureate study.

Students should see their Academic Advisors to discuss continuing their studies.

Transfers within the College
Students who are interested in transferring between programs at the College should consult with their Academic Advisors to determine eligibility and to plan their courses through the new program and develop new plans for graduation.

  • Full‐time Status. Full‐time students are enrolled for 12 or more quarter hours for the term. For academic purposes, students participating in approved internships are also considered to be full‐time students. Please note that this definition of full‐time study for internship periods is for academic purposes only. Full‐time enrollment status is always defined as 12 or more credits for financial aid purposes.
  • Overload Status. Students are in overload status if they take more than 19 quarter hours in a given quarter. Students who wish to take additional credits constituting an overload status must have the approval of their Academic Advisor. To enroll in more than 24 quarter hours, students must have the approval of the appropriate Dean or Program Chair. Students in overload status will also be assessed tuition charges beyond the full‐time tuition rate.
