A returning student who voluntarily withdrew from the Institute and returns within 180 days from the last date of attendance may be readmitted upon submission of a Request to Resume Program. This may be done via email or by submitting the Request to Resume Program form available from SDI. If a voluntarily withdrawn student chooses to return after 180 days from the last date of attendance, the student may be subject to program modifications including changes to graduation requirements and tuition and fees. The same form may be submitted and if necessary, Student Services will request additional documentation to acknowledge any relevant changes.
If a student was administratively withdrawn for lack of course participation/attendance, the student should submit a Request to Resume Program via email or by using the SDI form along with an explanation of what has changed that will enable the student to successfully complete the program.
All administrative dismissals from the Institute are permanent. A student who has been dismissed is not eligible for re-entry with SDI.
Maximum Start Date Changes
SDI reserves the right to limit the number of times a student may change their start date once admitted to a program of study.
Generally speaking, a student will be denied admission after changing start dates three times.
