Former Students Returning Advising
Once former students returning are readmitted to Clemson, they will need to meet with a college-specific academic advisor at the ASC to support their transition back to the University. Once a student has met with an academic advisor at the ASC, they will be reassigned to an academic advisor in their declared major, regardless of intended major. Non-degree seeking students will remain assigned to an academic advisor at the ASC. Former Students Returning complete an application to return through the Office of the Registrar for readmission.
If you are a former student who has already been readmitted to the University, please complete the mandatory intake form included in your email from the Registrar’s Office and follow instructions to schedule an appointment with an advisor based on your intended major. If you have applied and have not received a readmission email, please contact the Registrar’s Office at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
We suggest you complete the application and make an ASC appointment early. Towards the end of each semester, appointment availability and class availability will become limited. You may be directed to attend drop-in advising during the first week of classes. Information regarding drop-in advising will be made available to admitted students only.

- When can I apply to return for next semester?
- I plan to return after academic dismissal. What other steps do I need to take?
If you were academically dismissed from Clemson University, you will need to appeal your dismissal and submit an Application for Re-Entrance (see above). Find information for how to appeal for readmission after dismissal here: https://www.clemson.edu/academics/eligibility/appealing.html. After the Appeals Committee on Academic Eligibility has met, a decision will be sent to you and the Office of the Registrar. The Office of the Registrar will then process all applications for which an appeal was approved. Contact with any questions regarding your appeal process.
- What is academic renewal? How do I learn more?
Review the information on the Division of Undergraduate Studies Website regarding academic renewal appeals, processes, and deadlines:https://www.clemson.edu/academics/eligibility/appealing.html. You can speak more about academic renewal with an academic advisor at the ASC during your scheduled appointment.
- What is the academic recovery fee?
Review the information on the Division of Undergraduate Studies Website regarding the academic recovery fee and the programs it supports: https://www.clemson.edu/academics/programs/academic-recovery/reboot.html
- I’ve already met with an advisor in my department. Do I still need to meet with an academic advisor at the ASC?
Yes. All former students returning to complete a degree are required to meet with an ASC advisor prior to receiving their registration PIN and access to registration. After that appointment, you will be reassigned to an advisor in your department.
- I plan to change my major. How do I learn more?
You should refrain from submitting any change of academic program requests until after you meet with an academic advisor at the ASC. Our academic advisors will share with you any relevant eligibility criteria and application processes as part of your appointment, as well as steps you can take to connect with resources in your intended major.
- I want to change my major but do not meet the eligibility requirements. What are my next steps?
Our academic advisors will share with you any relevant eligibility criteria and application processes as part of your appointment, as well as steps you can take to connect with resources in your intended major. You will be assigned to an academic advisor in your declared major for future registration periods until you are eligible to officially change your major.
- I know I want a closed/limited major. What is a parallel plan and why do I need one?
Closed/limited majors only have a certain number of seats available in addition to the eligibility requirements and applications they may have. In some cases, even the best qualified students will not be able to change into those majors. Your advisor will ask you to build a parallel plan – another open major you are interested in and would be happy getting a degree in. If you are not able to change into a closed/limited major, you will be able to change into your open major of choice and complete your degree. Note that if you feel confident of your parallel plan, your academic advisor will strongly encourage you to declare that major while you work to become eligible and/or competitive for your closed/limited major of choice.
- I took courses at another institution while I was not enrolled. How do I ensure that credit is reflected on my transcript at Clemson?
Review the information on the Registrar’s Website regarding options for sending your transcripts to Clemson: https://www.clemson.edu/registrar/student-menu/student-records/transcripts.html Contact email@example.com with any questions regarding the status of your transcripts.
- What technology do I need to familiarize myself with to be successful in my first semester back?
There are two primary technologies that you will need access to in order to schedule your appointment with an academic advisor at the ASC:
- General Account Access: If you are having difficulty logging into your account and/or email, review the information at CCIT: https://ccit.clemson.edu/support/current-students/email-and-accounts/.
- DUO 2 Factor Authentication: You will need to set up DUO to access most advising and registration technologies at Clemson. Review the information here to set up: https://ccit.clemson.edu/cybersecurity/how-to/duo-authentication/.
You can find training materials for other student registration and advising technologies at this link: https://www.clemson.edu/registrar/student-menu/training-materials.html
- I am returning for personal/professional development reasons, not a degree. Do I still need to meet with an academic advisor?
No. As a non-degree seeking student, you are not required to meet with an academic advisor. Review the instructions in your readmission email for how to gain access to registration as a non-degree seeking student.
