*If you are interested in a future term please complete this brief form and we will email you when the application is available.

Following a break in enrollment of one semester or more, graduate students at John Carroll University must apply for readmission, if they did not request an official Leave of Absence prior to their break in attendance. Applicants for readmission to their graduate program should complete this online form. If the student is continuing in the same program, in many cases this form will reactivate their  student status to “current”, if an Official Leave of Absence Form was not submitted or expired. If the student is applying to a new program at John Carroll University, a new program application must be submitted, not the readmission application.

If the student has gone to another institution since attending John Carroll or has not attended the University  for an extended period of time, the student may be asked to submit additional documentation such as transcripts, recommendations or participate in an admission interview. The Graduate School will notify students if additional information is needed.

If you have any questions, please contact the Graduate School at gradadmit@jcu.edu or 216.397.4284.
