Medical Re-entry Process

Re-Entry Process Following Absence Due To Hospitalization or Medical Withdrawal

Any student that is hospitalized while enrolled at the College or takes a medical withdrawal from Bunker Hill Community College must comply with the College’s re-entry process before resuming classes.  This process is intended to ensure that a student who is returning from a hospitalization or medical withdrawal is capable of successfully resuming their academic activities.  The re-entry process includes the following steps: 

  1. Student completes and submits a Student Medical Re-Entry Form.  Student Re-Entry Request Form
  2. Student’s licensed health care provider completes and submits a Health Care Provider Medical Re-Entry Form. Provider Response Form
  3. and following the submission of both forms, the student shall meet with the Re-Entry Team for a re-entry interview to determine if and when it is appropriate for the student to resume his/her studies. The Re-Entry team is defined as 1 BHCC Counselor and the Dean of Students or designee.

The College’s Re-Entry Process is administered by the Dean of Students Office.  When the College is first informed of a student's hospitalization or medical withdrawal, the College will place a general "hold" on the student's registration, pending the College's decision on the student's re­entry.  Throughout the re-entry process, the highest level of confidentiality will be maintained. For more information about the Re-Entry Process, please contact the Dean of Students Office (617) 228-2408.

Students who are referred to the College’s Suicide Prevention Protocol shall be required to comply with the Re-Entry Process.
