Former UC Davis undergraduate students, who have not been degree awarded and wish to resume undergraduate studies, may reapply through the readmission process. This includes students who have canceled/withdrawn or have been dismissed from the university.
Students on the Planned Educational Leave Program (PELP) should not file for readmission unless they did not return as scheduled from their approved PELP leave.
The Readmission Application must be completed and submitted online. There is a non-transferable/non-refundable $70.00 application fee* that must be paid either online through the readmission application process or to the Cashier’s Office (cash or by checks made payable to “UC Regents”) on or before the deadline. The Cashier's Office is only open for processing Monday-Friday.
- 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 are not presented with payment information.
When the readmission application and payment have been received, a confirmation email is sent through MyMessages through myucdavis. Former students who cannot access MyMessages, need to provide an alternate email address when completing the application. The college Dean’s office reviews the student's file and sends a decision email to the student. Response time from the college Dean’s office varies and is dependent on the student's academic standing, and receipt of transcripts or other required items. Students approved for readmission are activated for the readmit term and assigned registration time appointments by the Office of the University Registrar.
If the timing of the readmission approval does not allow registration before the Student Fee Payment Deadline, a late fee is assessed. In this situation, the late fee is automatically waived from the student account after the 12th day of instruction.
Students approved for readmission should review the Readmission Checklist, below, and complete all steps in order to gain access to registration and successfully return to the university.
Students who have completed any college or university course work while away from UC Davis must submit an official transcript to their college Dean’s office and another official copy to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Failure to do so by the end of the readmitted term results in a registration hold for future registration.
Students should read the Tuition & Residence information to determine if a Statement of Legal Residence (SLR) is required after being approved for readmission.
