Readmission

If you are a former UC Davis undergraduate student who wishes to resume undergraduate studies, you may reapply through the readmission process. You are considered a former student if you have interrupted the completion of consecutive terms of enrollment on the UC Davis campus, did not receive a degree, and wish to return to campus. If you have cancelled or withdrawn your registration or have been dismissed from the university, you must file for readmission before you can resume your studies.

Graduate students apply for readmission through the Office of Graduate Studies.

Students involved in the Planned Educational Leave Program (PELP) do not file for readmission unless they have extended their absence beyond their approved PELP leave.

The Readmission Application must be completed and submitted online. There is a non-transferable and non-refundable $70.00 application fee* that must be paid either online through the readmission process or through the Cashier’s Office (cash or by checks made payable to “UC Regents”) on or before the deadline.  The Cashier's Office is open for processing Monday through Friday only.

Readmission deadlines:

  • Fall: August 31st
  • Winter:  October 31st
  • Spring:  January 31st

*Students returning from United States military service and Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) eligible students are not required to pay the application fee. Students returning from US military service must upload a copy of their active-duty paperwork along with their Readmission Application. Eligible EOP students will not be presented with payment information.

When your readmission application and payment have been received, a confirmation email will be sent to you through MyMessages if you cannot access MyMessages through myucdavis, the student website, you will need to provide an alternate email address when completing your application. Your Dean’s Office will review your file and make a readmission decision. The Dean's Office will then send you a decision email. Response time from the Dean’s Office will vary based on your academic situation, and receipt of transcripts or other required items. If you are approved for readmission, the Office of the University Registrar will activate your readmit term and assign pass appointments. If your readmission is denied, no further action will be taken by the University Registrar's Office. 

If the timing of your readmission approval does not allow you to register before the Student Fee Payment Deadline, a late fee will be assessed when you register and pay. That late fee will be automatically waived from your account after the 12th day of instruction.

If you receive an approval email from your Dean’s Office, please review the Readmission Checklist and complete all steps in order to achieve successful registration.

You will need to submit one copy of your official transcripts for any college or university work you have completed during your absence from UC Davis to your college Dean’s Office and an additional official copy to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. If you fail to do so by the end of your readmitted term, you will be blocked from future registration.

Be sure to read the Residence for Tuition information as you may be required to update a campus Residence Deputy regarding your residence status.
