You are eligible to return to the College of Liberal Arts if your last registration at the University was in CLA and you were in good academic standing.

Returning from an Approved Leave

If you are returning from an approved leave of absence, you may usually complete your degree following the requirements in place at the time you left. Consult with your academic advisor for details. When your leave ends, call the CLA Student Services at 612-625-2020 for registration instructions.

Returning from an Unapproved Absence

If you do not have an approved leave of absence, you may be held to degree requirements in affect at the time you return. Consult with your academic advisor for details. Complete an Application for Readmission following the instructions below.

Returning from Academic Suspension

Make an appointment with your academic advisor to discuss the terms of a possible return to school. Readmission is not automatic. If you receive approval, submit your Application for Readmission as described below.

Returning After Graduation

You may return to CLA to complete an additional CLA major or minor or take courses for enrichment by completing the Application for Readmission. If you are interested in a major or minor offered by another UMTC undergraduate college, contact the college offering it for instructions. If you are completing prerequisite courses to be eligible for admission to a degree-seeking program, you can apply for a limited amount of financial aid using the Prerequisite Coursework Certification form.

Returning to a Different College

To return to start at a different undergraduate college of the University, submit the Change of College form instead of the Application for Readmission. If you were a dual degree student pursuing degrees in two different colleges, you will have to apply for readmission through each college separately.

How to Apply for Readmission

Download the Application for Readmission. You may submit it in person, by mail, by email (class@umn.edu) or by fax (612-626-0022). Applications will be processed within one to two business days, unless there are unforseen circumstances that require additional attention. After the Application has been processed you will be notified via email that you have been readmitted into the College of Liberal Arts. If you have any questions please email class@umn.edu
