Students who have withdrawn in good standing or who otherwise been absent from the college for more than one semester must reapply for admission. Reapplication must be made at least one month in advance of enrollment. Students terminated for academic or disciplinary reasons must apply for readmission.
Special students are degree-seeking students whose qualifications (academic or otherwise) do not justify regular admission. Special students are provisionally admitted to Talladega. The admission of special students is determined on a case-by-case basis. Special students are not eligible to participate in intercollegiate athletics or other student activities. They are, however, subject to the same rules and regulations as regular students. Special students who have been enrolled at another college or university as a degree-seeking student must be eligible to return to the institution last attended.
Transient students are those pursuing a degree at another college or university who wish to enroll at Talladega for a limited period of time for the purpose of earning credit to be transferred to his or her home institution. Such students are not subject to the requirements for admissions, but must submit written permission from his or her academic dean to take courses at Talladega. Transient students may later become candidates for enrollment. They are not eligible to participate in intercollegiate athletics or other student activities. They are, however, subject to the same rules and regulations as regular students.
