Undergraduate Readmission

Any former ASU student who has not been enrolled at ASU for three or more semester, completed their previous degree program, or was academic disqualified must reapply to the university.  For more information on how submit an application for readmission, go to the Undergraduate Readmission page.

Readmission processing occurs somewhat differently than transfer or freshman admission.  Expect the process to take longer than your first application.  Complete your application (submit electronic application and complete any to-do’s, such transcript submission) at least one month prior to the start of the session to which you are applying.  Doing so will guarantee time for an admission decision to process and for you to complete any necessary tasks, such as academic advising, prior to enrollment.

How you left the university will determine what requirements you must meet in order to gain readmission into a CLAS program.

If you left the university with a 2.0 GPA or over, you will need to meet the readmission requirements for any given program.  Find your program of interest in the Undergraduate Degrees page.

Most CLAS programs only require that your previous GPA was 2.0 or higher.  The following programs include additional requirements:

  • Communication (BA or BS) – ASU GPA of 2.5 or higher
  • Actuarial Science – ASU GPA of 3.0 or higher

If you left the university on academic probation, you are eligible for readmission into most CLAS programs.  Find your program of interest in the Undergraduate Degrees page.  You will not be eligible for the following programs:

  • Communication (BS or BS)
  • Psychology (BA or BS)
  • Actuarial Science

If disqualified, students must sit out for at least one full calendar year to be eligible for readmission.  Students must sit out a year regardless of whether the disqualification was in a CLAS program or by another college at ASU. 

Disqualified students should first engage in the appeal process to determine a readmission decision.  Begin the appeal process by calling the Office of Student and Academic Programs at 480-965-6506.  You will schedule an appointment with a readmission specialist and be directed to complete the CLAS Readmission Appeal web form prior to the appointment.

In the appointment, the readmission specialist will work with you to identify factors that led to the disqualification, which may include personal, financial, academic, and other circumstances.  The readmission decision will largely depend on the ways in which you have addressed the factors leading to disqualification and ways that you may have demonstrated readiness to return to the classroom.  You may meet with a readmission specialist at any time while on disqualification to better determine what steps you can take to demonstrate readiness for readmission.

In readmitting you after disqualification, the readmission specialist may limit the number of credits and require specific coursework taken in your first semester back at ASU. 

You must be approved to return and have completed your application for admission at least one month prior to the start of term/session in order to ensure readmission.

International students often face additional logistical hurdles in returning to the U.S. after being readmitted.  You must be readmitted with enough time to complete whatever requirements you may have to gain an I-20.  You may be surprised to discover that you must retake the TOEFL in order to regain an I-20. 

You should plan to reapply to ASU at least three months prior to the term you wish to attend.  Beyond the I-20, the readmission process can sometimes take longer than your first admission.  See the options above to determine your specific steps for readmission.
