Readmission materials should be submitted to:
Office of Admissions and Financial Aid
Candler School of Theology
1531 Dickey Dr.
Atlanta, GA 30322
The Office of Admissions will communicate in writing decisions regarding requests for readmission. A positive readmission decision is required prior to course registration and Financial Aid consideration.
In addition to the material the applicant provides, the readmission consideration process involves a careful examination of the applicant's previous record, including transcript(s) and financial account, as well as a consultation with the applicant's previous academic adviser, the Academic dean and members of Admissions, Scholarship and Honors Committee.
After a leave of absence, a former Candler recipient should file the FAFSA (international students who are not permanent residents are not required to file the FAFSA). Provided that the student still qualifies for the scholarship with regard to GPA, vocational plan and planned enrollment status, the student's scholarship will be reinstated for the remaining hours of scholarship eligibility. After a withdrawal, the student forfeits the Candler scholarship and the scholarship cannot be reinstated. All degree seeking students who are US citizens or permanent residents will be reviewed for federal loan and work study eligibility.
