Readmission to the Graduate Program
Students who take two or more semesters off (including summer) must apply for readmission. All graduate readmissions must be approved by both the Department and the College. The Department generally approves the readmission of graduate students who were in good standing when last enrolled, and may require additional documentation or deny readmission for students absent without leave or those not in good standing in the program. Readmission is specific to one semester and does not roll over to the next semester.
The Process of Applying for Readmission
- Start early. Begin the process at least 6 weeks before the first day of classes. If you have been offered a fellowship or assistantship, it is particularly important that you start the process early to avoid delays in the payment of your funding.
- Contact the Graduate Program Assistant. Notify the Department of your intent to apply for readmission. The Graduate Program Assistant will then expect your readmission application and can alert you to any possible problems, delays, or change of policy.
- Complete the Application for Readmission The readmission form is a multi-page form and must be submitted with a check made payable to the University of Florida, Office of Admissions. Make sure that your UF ID number is clearly written on the check. Bring or send the form to the Department office. The Graduate Program Assistant will secure the Department and College signatures and then take the form and check to the Office of Admissions. Once the check clears, call the Office of Admissions and request a registration appointment. As soon as you clear your holds, you will be ready to register.
At the time of readmission, the Office of Admissions will review your residency status based on information you submit on the reapplication form. If you have questions about your residency status, contact the Office of Admissions. The Department has no influence on the determination of your residency status.
