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. Make sure to submit the form at least two weeks before the start of the semester in which you plan to return. It is recommended to submit the form as early as possible to secure an earlier course registration time.
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. Complete an Application for Readmission using the online workflow.
Returning from an Unapproved Absence
If you do not have an approved leave of absence, you may be held to degree requirements in effect at the time you return. Consult with your academic advisor for details. Complete an Application for Readmission using the online workflow.
Returning from Academic Probation
Make an appointment with your academic advisor to discuss the terms of a possible return to school and to adjust the probation hold on your account. Once this is complete, submit your Application for Readmission using the online workflow.
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. Link to the Request for Readmission After First Suspension information outlining the process. If you receive approval, submit your Application for Readmission using the online workflow.
Returning After Graduation
You may return to CLA to complete an additional CLA undergraduate major or minor, or to take courses for enrichment. If you plan to complete a second CLA major, minor, or degree, then you must first contact the department you plan to complete a major or minor program with. Work with the department to declare the major or minor and to come up with a plan for completing the major or minor. Once you have done so, then you can complete the Application for Readmission. If you are interested in a major or minor offered by another University of Minnesota Twin Cities 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 found under the financial aid drop-down menu on the One Stop website.
Returning to a Different College
To return and start at a different undergraduate college of the University, visit the One Stop webpage, review the steps to change your college, and follow the steps to change your college instead of completing an 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.
