How Do I Return to SMC?
Fill out a Re-Enrollment Form
The first step in returning to Temple’s School of Media and Communication is to complete a re-enrollment form and send it in to SMC Student Affairs/Advising.
Click here to download the re-enrollment form.
- Apply to the School/College in which you are interested.
- Receive a letter indicating acceptance or denial.
- All holds must be cleared, as a decision cannot be made if holds exist on the account.
- If accepted, student must make an hour appointment with an SMC Academic Advisor, as outlined in the acceptance letter.
- If the student attended any other university during their time away from Temple, he or she needs to provide an official transcript to the contact listed on the re-enrollment application.
- If the student was out more than one semester due to a medical leave, medical clearance must be submitted to the SMC Student Affairs/Advising Center from your health provider.
If you have been out for one or more semesters and you are not on an approved Leave of Absence, you must follow the requirements that are currently in place in the university and your program. If any of your major credits are ten or more years old, you will be required to formally petition to the department of your major that they be allowable toward your degree. There is no guarantee that credits ten or more years old will be accepted.
