Admissions Information for Individuals Who Withdrew During the Strike Period

We were sorry to see you withdraw from the Fall 2017 semester, but appreciate that the strike was disruptive for many students. First year students who voluntarily withdrew from St. Lawrence College due to the strike are considered eligible for Fall 2018 admission to the same program and campus from which they withdrew, if they re-apply by the equal consideration deadline of February 1, 2018. Please see below for further details regarding Fall 2018 admission eligibility and the next steps in the admissions process, and learn more about all of the resources SLC offers for student success.

Fall 2018 Admission Eligibility

Admission Eligibility for students who withdrew between October 16 and December 5, 2017 (inclusive): First year students who voluntarily withdrew from the college during the Fall 2017 term (October 16 - December 5 inclusive) will be considered fully eligible for 2018 Fall admission to the program they withdrew from if they re-apply by the February 1, 2018 Equal Consideration Date. If they apply after February 1, 2018, they will be considered fully eligible for admission if spaces are available.Note that normal OCAS application fees will apply.

Take the Next Steps

If you withdrew during the effected time period (October 16 – December 5 inclusive), take the following actions in the re-admission process:

  • Apply to the same program and campus for Fall 2018 through by February 1, 2018. (Note that normal OCAS application fees will apply.)
  • Meet all admission deadlines including: accept the offer by May 1; pay the nonrefundable deposit by June 15; meet any other deadlines associated with the new offer.

Upper year students, in good standing, who voluntarily withdrew from the college during the Fall 2017 term (October 16 - December 5, 2017 inclusive) will be considered fully eligible for 2018 re-admission to the program and semester from which they withdrew if they re-apply by the February 1, 2018 Equal Consideration Date. Exceptions: Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN), Practical Nursing, and Medical Laboratory Science. These programs cannot guarantee a re-admission seat due to factors outside the control of the college and are usually waitlisted for re-admission. Every reasonable effort will be made to re-admit students but Fall 2018 space is not guaranteed. Upper year students who wish to reapply should complete the advanced level entry form and submit it with the $25.00 application fee to Student Services on Brockville and Cornwall campuses, or their Academic School Office on Kingston campus.

Applications received after February 1, 2018 will be considered fully eligible for admission if spaces are still available.
