Returning Students

Be re-focused.

Maybe you put your education on hold to take care of other commitments. Maybe it was simply a personal reason. The important thing is that it’s never too late to re-focus on your education, earn your degree, and revitalize your career.

Be part of the community.

The Berkeley student body is made up of all ages. That means you’ll find students just like you. You’ll have the opportunity to form relationships with others who share similar backgrounds, interests, and goals. You’ll also find a wealth of support services and resources dedicated to helping you succeed—no matter what your circumstances.

Returning students should be aware of the following:

Readmissions: Berkeley College has established a Readmissions process to assist former students, who have been out of attendance for one term or more, with the transition back to college. To be considered for readmission, students must be aware of the following:

  • Readmission Request form must be submitted.
  • Former students who are not in satisfactory academic standing must submit a Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Appeal form for approval by the designated deadline for each term.
  • Students who have attended another college since last attending Berkeley College should have official transcripts sent from that institution to the attention of Berkeley College Readmissions, 44 Rifle Camp Road, Woodland Park, NJ 07424.
  • Students who return to Berkeley College after having withdrawn for a period of time may find that program requirements have changed.  All students who return to Berkeley College a year or more after their most recent withdrawal will be required to fulfill current program requirements, which may necessitate taking additional courses or repeating courses originally taken. The Registrar has the authority to determine the extent to which credits earned prior to withdrawal may be used to fulfill current program requirements.  Students who would like to return to the program requirements that were required when last attended must obtain approval from the Dean of the School which houses the program. 
  • Students wishing to seek readmission to programs offered in the School of Health Studies must obtain prior approval from the Department Chair and/or the Dean of the School of Health Studies.
  • The Readmissions Department may be contacted via email at
