Former Undergraduate Students
Students in Academic Good Standing
If you were previously enrolled as a regular student at Clemson (not a special or transient student) but are not enrolled in the current term, you are classified as a former student.
If you have graduated from Clemson and are applying as a former student returning, your program will be changed to a "Non-Degree Seeking Undergraduate" until you complete a
Change of Program Form with Enrolled Student Services in 104 Sikes Hall. If you are a former student continuing your studies, you will be readmitted into your previous major but in
the current catalog year. Senior students—students with 90+ hours—are readmitted into the major AND catalog year they were in when they last attended. Former students returning
whose major has been discontinued will return in a non-degree status and must change to a degree-granting program.
The Undergraduate Application for Re-Admission is no longer available for the Spring term. The application will be available for Summer and Fall beginning March 12, 2018.

The Undergraduate Application for Re-Admission fee is $25.00. Online
instructions for payment are provided in the application.
Acceptance letters will be emailed to returning students to the email address
entered on the application.
After readmission and prior to enrolling in courses, all undergraduate former
students returning must meet with an advisor in the Academic Success Center
(ASC). Advising appointments are made on a first come, first served basis. If
you are considering taking a course over the summer, you are encouraged to meet
with an advisor early.
Course registration activity will not be permitted unless you meet with an ASC advisor.
Students who have been Academically Suspended/Dismissed
If you have been academically suspended from Clemson University, you will need to submit an Application for Re-Entrance in order to return.
If you have been academically dismissed from Clemson University, you will need to appeal your dismissal and submit an Application for Re-Entrance.
After the Appeals Committee on Academic Eligibility has met, a decision will be sent to you and the Office of the Registrar. The Office of the Registrar will then process all applications for which an
appeal was approved. You may go ahead and schedule an advising appointment with the Academic Success Center to have an academic plan in place.
*However, meeting with an advisor does not guarantee you will be granted re-admission. This is for planning purposes only.
The Appeals Committee on Academic Eligibility will meet on the following dates to review appeals:
|| May 5, 2017
|| August 4, 2017
|| December 21, 2017
