Returning Students

Welcome back to Lander

An application should be submitted by any former student whose attendance at Lander University has been interrupted for one semester or longer. Summer sessions do not constitute major semesters. Readmission to the University and to the program of study in which the student was previously enrolled is not automatic. The student is admitted to the university based on the status they left in.




Admissions Checklist

  • Complete an application.
  • Submit final official transcripts from all colleges attended since last enrollment at Lander University.
  • Submit a final official high school transcript (if not previously submitted).

There is no application fee required for readmission. In order for a former student to be reviewed for readmission, any indebtedness to the University must be settled.

Application Deadlines

  • Fall Semester - August 1
  • Spring Semester - December 15
  • Summer Semester - May 1
