Application 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 readmitted into your previous major but in the current catalog year. Senior students (students with 90+ hours) are readmitted 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 grads applying for re-entrance as a former student are placed in a "Non-Degree Seeking Undergraduate" status. After re-admittance you can update your status via a Change of Program Form in iROAR.

After admission and prior to enrolling in courses, all 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 are re-admitted 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 an Application 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 Application 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. The Appeals Committee will meet on May 8, 2020 to review appeals for Summer 2020 and August 7 for Fall 2020.

Course Modality for Summer and Fall 2021

The university adjusted the course modality policy in April 2021. For more information and the most recent announcement, please read the Course Modality Policy Modification. For questions regarding a request to attend online during Summer or Fall 2021, please contact Student Accessibility Services.
