|The Request to Resume Studies form is to be used by students who previously attended
LHU as a degree seeking or non-degree seeking student and have missed at lease one
semester (fall or spring) of attendance and want to return for additional courswork
or by students who have graduated from LHU and want to return to complete additional
coursework or another undergraduate degree program.
Your request to resume studying will be reviewed by the Registrar's Office for academic eligibility to continue enrollment at Lock Haven University.
CHANGE OF MAJORStudents who plan to continue enrollment in a different major than previously declared, or who are returning for a second degree, must complete the Change of Major form available on myHaven, Registrar tab under "Forms" (https://myhaven.lhup.edu/ICS/Registrar/Forms.jnz).
FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY
Approval of a request to resume studies through the Registrar's Office neither implies nor guarantees the receipt of financial aid or the ability to enroll. Non-degree students, including certificate-only programs, ARE NOT eligible for state and federal financial aid.
A student's previous academic and financial history can affect the ability to receive
financial aid. Any current or prior unpaid or delinquent account balances will hinder
a student's ability to re-enroll. It is highly recommended that all students who wish
to resume their studies contact the Financial Aid Office prior to submitting this
application to review financial aid eligibility. (Ulmer Hall 224; 570-484-2424)
DEADLINEThis form must be submitted to the Registrar's Offie by noon on the Friday before classes begin for your requested semester/session. Forms received after this time will not be processed.
STUDENT ACCOUNT HOLDSUnmet financial obligations prevent registration; contact Student Accounts (Ulmer Hall 224, 570-484-2425).
