I have taken some time away from U-M and now want to be readmitted. What do I do?

The procedures for readmission vary among the U-M schools and colleges. Information for readmission to the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) is listed below, but if you were an undergraduate in another school or college, you should contact that school or college directly.

If you were previously enrolled in LSA and left in good academic standing:

  • Students who have been away for less than two years should contact the Office of the Registrar at 734-647-3507 or at to obtain an appointment for registration. Academic advisors in the LSA Academic Advising Center are available to discuss academic choices and course selection with returning students.
  • Students who have been absent from LSA for more than two full years (24 months) must apply for readmission by submitting an Application for Reactivation which is available from the Office of Academic Advising, 1255 Angell Hall. Students also must meet with an Academic Standards Board member.
  • International students on temporary U.S. visa status (F-1 or J-1) who have missed a full year must must contact the International Center to have their visa status updated.
  • If a student has done academic work out-of-residence since leaving LSA, official transcript(s) of that work should be submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Students suspended from LSA for reasons of unsatisfactory academic performance must obtain permission to register from the Academic Standards Board. In these cases, the readmission decision rests entirely with the Academic Standards Board. Such students must make an appointment with a member of the Academic Standards Board at least eight weeks prior to the desired readmission term to discuss readmission to LSA. Petitions requesting reinstatement should be received by the Academic Standards Board at least six weeks prior to the beginning of the term in question.
