Readmission

A readmission applicant is a student who has previously been enrolled at the university as a degree-seeking student, but either had a break in enrollment or graduated.

Types of Readmission Applicants

Did you attend UT for at least one semester and leave in good academic standing? If so, you will be automatically readmitted when we receive your application. Please note that some colleges will not readmit a student to their degree programs. Check with your college advising center for restrictions on readmitting students. If you have attended another institution, please have a copy of your transcript mailed directly to the address below so we may award your transfer credit of completed course work.

Did you leave UT while on academic probation, but without being academically dismissed? If so, you will be automatically readmitted when we receive your application. Please note that some colleges will not readmit a student to their degree programs. Check with your college advising center for restrictions on readmitting students.

If you have attended another institution, you must have a copy of your transcript mailed directly to the address below so that transfer credit of completed course work may be awarded.

Were you academically dismissed from UT? If so, you must submit an application, along with supporting documentation showing evidence of academic or situational changes that are relevant to your academic performance. Applications received from students in this category are reviewed individually for a readmission decision. Please note that some colleges will not readmit a student to their degree programs. Check with your college advising center for restrictions on readmitting students.

If you have attended another institution, you must have a copy of your transcript mailed directly to the below address so that transfer credit of completed course work may be awarded.
