Request for Re-Entrance

If you were previously enrolled as a regular student at Clemson (not a special or transient student) but are not enrolled in the current term, you are classified as a former student.

Former Undergraduate Students

Former Students

If you are a former student continuing your studies, you will be approved to reenter your previous major but in the current catalog year. Students with 90+ hours are approved into the major AND catalog year they were in when they last attended. Former students returning whose major has been discontinued will return in a non-degree status and must change to a degree-granting program.

Clemson graduates requesting re-entrance as former students are placed in a "Non-Degree Seeking Undergraduate" status. After your request is approved you can update your status via a Change of Program Form in iROAR.

After approval and prior to enrolling in courses, all degree-seeking former undergraduates must meet with an advisor in the Academic Success Center (ASC). Advising appointments are made on a first come, first serve basis. If you are considering taking a course over the summer, you should meet with an advisor early. Course registration is not permitted until you meet with an ASC advisor.

Academic Probation, Suspension or Dismissal


Students on academic probation return on probation.  Students remain on probation until the requirements to be in good standing have been met.


If you have been academically suspended from Clemson, you will need to submit a Request for Re-Entrance when you are eligible to return.


If you have been academically dismissed from Clemson University, you will need to appeal your dismissal and submit an Request for Re-Entrance. 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. For more questions and deadlines for appeals, please contact Undergraduate Studies.

Former Graduate Students

Graduate students enrolled for more than two years but less than six years must complete an Graduate Application for Re-Entrance which must be approved by their academic department. The application must show any new graduate work. The Graduate School may ask for official transcripts.

Students not enrolled in the past six years are considered new students. They must submit a new application, fee and all supporting materials to Graduate Admissions, E-209 Martin Hall.

Former students who wish to take undergraduate courses should contact the Admissions Office for procedures.
