Applying for Readmission

Step 1: Determine whether you qualify as a readmit

A readmit applicant is someone who has been enrolled in a degree-seeking program at CU Boulder but is no longer eligible to register for classes and must reapply.

  • If you have a graded semester of work for one or more semesters, which can include Withdraw grades, and have been away from CU for more than a year (three semesters) you will likely have to reapply.
  • If you have been gone less than a year but have an academic or conduct-related suspension, you will have to reapply.
  • If you graduated from CU Boulder and want to return to earn another undergraduate degree you are a readmit regardless of the amount of time that elapsed between when you want to return and your graduation.
  • You are NOT considered a readmit if
    • You have been admitted to CU Boulder but did not attend, or withdrew early enough in the semester that your transcript does not show course titles or grades,
    • You have not attended CU Boulder but have attended another University of Colorado campus,
    • You are eligible to enroll.

If you have questions about whether you are eligible to enroll or if you must apply as a readmit, please contact the registrar or the admissions office.   

Step 2: Reapply to CU Boulder

If you are not eligible to enroll and need to readmit, create an account and submit the readmit application for admission. The application fee is waived for readmits.

Step 3: Submit your transcripts

Have your transcripts for any college-level work you have done since your prior attendance at CU Boulder submitted directly to the Office of Admissions from the issuing institution.

Please note: you do not need to re-submit transcripts for high school work, college work done prior to your last attendance at CU Boulder, or any college work done at a University of Colorado campus.

Step 4: Check your status

Monitor your email for a notification that your status page is ready to view and there may be additional requirements listed on your checklist. When your checklist is complete, look for an email informing you of your admission decision.

Step 5: Confirm your enrollment

If admitted, you will need to submit a reply form and confirmation deposit of $200 on your application status page.

Please note: international F-1 and J-1 students will need to upload updated ‘proof of funding’ visa documents to their reply form before they can submit the deposit and confirm.
