If you were accepted and matriculated in an undergraduate degree program at New Paltz and your attendance at the college was discontinued for any reason, at any time, or if you thought you graduated but did not because of course deficiencies and/or failure to submit the proper graduation paperwork ... You must apply for readmission!
Readmission is required for all non-graduates regardless of the number of credits believed to be lacking in order to receive the undergraduate degree.

You are if you attended New Paltz as a matriculated student for at least one semester.
You are in good, overall academic standing (minimum 2.0 GPA). However, having a 2.0 GPA does not guarantee admission to either the college or to a major.
