Readmission Process

We are excited to hear you are planning to return to Wittenberg! Many students re-enroll throughout their college experience and our goal is to make that process as simple as possible. Below you will see frequently asked questions regarding readmission as well as a link to the application and contact information for the Admission representative who is there to assist you in the process.

Wittenberg welcomes and encourages once enrolled students who wish to complete their degrees to reapply to Wittenberg through our Readmission Application. It is a fairly short application, and should not take long to complete.

Please complete the Readmission Application (found via the Office of the Registrar at this link) and submit via mail, fax, or email to:

Wittenberg University
Attn: Lindsey Stevens, Associate Director of Admission
PO Box 720
Springfield, Ohio 45501
Fax: (937) 327-6379
Phone: (937) 327-6368

Lindsey is also available to answer any questions you may have about the readmission process. Feel free to send her an email or call; most questions regarding readmission can be answered via phone or email without a trip to campus required.

Students will need to be cleared for readmission through the Dean of Students, Academic Services, and Student Financial Services. Once all offices clear a student, communication will happen via email provided, and the next steps for housing and registration will be communicated.

Students who were placed on academic probation or academic suspension will also have to be cleared through the Board of Academic Standards.

Any outstanding account balances must be rectified in order to readmit.

The process could take up to 3 weeks to complete, so please plan ahead. We work hard to help all students but it does take time to gather information needed to readmit a student to Wittenberg.

Readmitted students can register for classes during the Open Registration Period (mid-November for January starting students and mid-April for August-starting students) You will work with our Registrar's Office to complete class registration.

Readmission application due dates:

  • For January/Spring start: December 1
  • For August/Fall start: August 1
