Reentry and Readmission


If you voluntarily interrupted your university work while in good academic standing, you may be granted reentry status by submitting an application to the Records and Registration Office if the reentry enrollment target has not been reached already. Due to enrollment limits, it is possible not all students who apply for reentry will be accepted. It is advantageous to apply early in order to be approved to register as soon as possible. If you have been out of school voluntarily for a year or more, or involuntarily for any amount of time, you will be subject to the requirements of the catalog in effect upon your return. If you have been gone voluntarily for one semester, you remain under your "old" catalog. Students granted reentry status who were on scholastic probation or other conditional status, at the time of last attendance at UWL, retain such status as a condition of reentry.

If you have attended another institution(s) after leaving UWL, have official transcripts of your academic record(s) mailed directly from the issuing institutions(s) to the UWL Records and Registration Office at the time that you apply for reentry. Transcripts that are marked "Issued to Student" or that are hand delivered by a student will not be accepted.

Eligibility for reentry is based upon previous work at this university and any others you attended since attending UWL. You must be eligible to return to the institution last attended. Reentry transfers must meet the same GPA requirements for admission as other transfer students.


If you desire readmission after having been declared ineligible to continue for scholastic or other reasons, you must apply to the dean of the UWL school or college in which you were last enrolled. Students declared ineligible to continue must follow catalog requirements in effect at the time of readmission. It is advantageous to apply for readmission early in order to facilitate registration in a timely manner. The appropriate dean will apprise the Records and Registration Office of the students eligible for readmission. During times of controlled or limited enrollment, preference will be given to students reentering in good standing.
