For All Returning Students: It is strongly advised that you submit your application by the end of March for the fall semester and by the end of October for the spring semester. Many classes fill up quickly and applying early for readmission will ensure that your application is processed in time for you to register for the classes you need to fulfill your graduation requirements. Also, if you have any holds on your account or owe money to the college or another SUNY school, these must be cleared before your application for readmission can be reviewed.
For Students Seeking Readmission to the Crane School of Music: You must also be cleared by the School of Music administration, which may delay the readmission process. Details about readmission to Crane can be found in the Crane Student Handbook ("Procedure for Readmission"). For students who have sat out more than two full semesters or who have failed out of a music degree program, additional steps may be required, as explained in the Handbook.
Previously dismissed students must be away from campus for one full academic semester. Following that semester, students who wish to return may be eligible for readmission after demonstrating academic readiness through this Application for Readmission After Dismissal. We strongly recommend that students attach additional materials (grade reports, letters of support, etc.) as evidence of their academic readiness.
