Readmission/Return from Leave of Absence

Returning from Leave of Absence

Students who are currently not enrolled at UMD on either an official Leave of Absence, or on a break in their education, need to fill out the Request for re-admission/Return from leave of absence form. Submit this form to the Advising & Academic Services office of the college/school in which you would like to re-enter UMD.

Returning after Academic Suspension

Students who have been academically suspended are not automatically re-admitted after the mandatory time away. Students must be able to demonstrate that you can succeed within your academic program or that the circumstances causing your academic hardship have changed. Students who elect to continue their academics should reflect on what caused their previous performance. Mental health, physical health, safety, well-being, etc. is the top priority. We want students to be healthy, supported, and ready to succeed when returning to UMD.

Submit the following forms to CEHSP Advising & Academic Services office

  1. Required: CEHSP Request for Re-Enrollment After Academic Suspension
  2. Required: Readmission/Return from Leave of Absence Application
  3. Optional: Students requesting financial aid will be required to file a Student Financial Aid eligibility> application with supporting documentation through One Stop Student Services.
