Welcome Back Warrior!

If you were previously registered at East Stroudsburg University, and have been away for three consecutive academic terms, we want you to complete the returning student form.

Academic Forgiveness

This procedure will allow undergraduate students who previously accrued a number of grades below 2.0 level of C to be "forgiven" for their earlier performance. This policy applies to returning students who have been away from ESU for 3 years or more.

Account Holds

If you have any of the following hold(s) on your account:

  • Math Competency (MC) Hold
    A Basic Mathematical Skills Competency requirement is one of the requirements for an undergraduate degree from East Stroudsburg University and complete the form which needs to be signed off by your adviser and sent over to Student Enrollment Services for processing, or call the Math department at (570) 422-3447.
  • Outstanding Balance (PD) or a Prior Balance Payment Plan (PB) Hold
    Students are responsible for the payment of tuition, fees, room and board, meal plans and payments for miscellaneous items such as study abroad programs, theater productions, and library fees. Readmit students are required to have a zero balance prior to returning back to ESU. Please contact Ms. Laura LaMura at llamura@esu.edu (570) 422-3784 regarding payment.
  • Student Conduct Sanction (SC) Hold
    The primary focus of Student Conduct and Community Standards is to administer campus judicial procedures in support of the university's efforts to promote a disciplined community. Student Conduct and Community Standards encourages equality, dignity and mutual respect among members of the campus and the adjacent communities. Please contact the office of Student Conduct & Community Standards, Maria Cutsinger at (570) 422-3461 or email mcutsinger@esu.edu
