be away for at least one full semester. A Readmission form may be obtained
from the Registrar's Office.
The Administrative Board acts on all applications for
readmission, taking into account the applicant's Smith record, subsequent academic
work, and information provided on the application itself. The Board may require an
applicant to meet with the class dean and/or the associate director of the Health
