Returning Students


The Permit to Re-enroll form is only intended for individuals who have enrolled in their graduate program in the past year. The permit to re-enroll form is not available to a student who: 

  • was dismissed from a program at KU;
  • was voluntarily discontinued (formally withdrew) from a graduate program;
  • completed the graduate degree program; or
  • most recently enrolled as a non-degree-seeking graduate student.

Before completing the Permit to Re-enroll form, students should verify with their graduate program that they are eligible to complete this form. 

To complete the permit to re-enroll application, visit KU Graduate Permit to Re-Enroll

Dismissed students and those who withdrew from the program must submit a full application.

Students will not be considered for readmission if they are currently on a leave of absence, if they have not been enrolled in the past year or have earned a degree from the graduate degree program.

Form Fee: $20
