Graduate Readmission

Following a break in enrollment of one long semester or more, graduate students at The University of Texas at Austin must apply for readmission.

Complete the Online Application

Applicants for readmission to a graduate program should complete the online Application for Readmission to Graduate Study (UT EID and password required).

Pay the Application Fee

Pay your non-refundable $65 application fee via What I Owe (MasterCard, Discover and electronic checks accepted).

Leaves of Absence

If you were granted a leave of absence by your department prior to your departure, the application fee will be waived automatically.

Decisions

Students applying for readmission are notified of the graduate program’s decision to admit or deny by letter. The graduate adviser may place conditions on the readmission, and is responsible for notifying the student of the conditions.

Students who left while subject to a warning must have the approval of the graduate dean to return.

Doctoral candidates who fail to register continuously and who have not been granted a leave of absence must be readmitted to candidacy as well as to the graduate program. The Graduate Studies Committee and the graduate dean must approve readmission to candidacy and may impose additional coursework.
