Graduate School Readmission


Returning students, sometimes referred to as former students or readmits, are students who previously attended A&M-Central Texas and wish to return to the university after sitting out more than one year. For graduate students who have been out for less than one year, see Reactivation Following Non-Attendance section below. Generally, returning students must follow the below steps in order to be considered for readmission to the university:

  1. Complete and submit a Quick Admission Application
  2. Submit official transcripts from every institution since lasted enrolled at A&M-Central Texas. 

Returning students who have not enrolled at any other college or university since last attending A&M-Central Texas will be readmitted to the university. Returning students who have enrolled at another college or university since last attending A&M-Central Texas must meet all general admission requirements. 

Exception to Readmission Requirements

In accordance with Texas Education Code § 51.9242 Readmission of Student Who Withdraws to Perform Active Military Service, A&M-Central Texas students who withdraw from the university to serve in active duty for the U.S. Armed Forces or the Texas National Guard are not required to complete the university application or pay an application fee if re-enrollment occurs within a year of separation from the military. For additional information, contact the Office of Recruitment & Undergraduate Admissions.

Readmission after Academic Suspension

Students who leave the university due to academic suspension may reapply and be readmitted post suspension. If admitted, returning students must complete a contract with the Graduate School, and may also be required to meet with their graduate program advisor.

Readmission after Conduct Suspension

Students who leave the university due to conduct or behavioral concerns must submit a readmission and registration request to the Office of Student Conduct no earlier than the last four weeks of the semester or academic period prior to the semester of their intended re-enrollment. Students who are placed on conduct suspension are automatically blocked from registering for future semesters until a request has been approved by the Office of Student Conduct.

Reactivation Following Non-Attendance

Within one year of non-attendance, former students may elect to receive a one-time reactivation, forego the re-application process and maintain their continuing student status at A&M-Central Texas. Former students requesting reactivation must do so before the start of the semester they plan to re-enroll and must be in good academic standing or under suspension contract in order to be eligible.
