Reinstatement, sometimes referred to as readmission, is the process of returning to CGU to resume your studies. Reinstatement is limited to the degree program in which you were previously enrolled at CGU. Former students who wish to pursue a new degree must submit a complete application through Admissions.
Consideration for reinstatement involves a review of your student record and an evaluation of your academic progress to degree. At the discretion of your program, you may be required to enroll in additional courses and/or complete additional degree requirements in order to qualify for your degree. This review is necessary to ensure the relevancy of your academic work for your new anticipated degree date.
CGU students are eligible for readmission if you meet all of the following qualifications.
You did not have an active student status in the previous semester. Active student status refers to enrollment in classes or an approved leave of absence.
You are requesting a return to the same degree program in which you were last enrolled.
You have no outstanding obligations to the University.
You were not previously dismissed from the University.
Note that except for your official transcript, CGU retains student files for a period of only five years following a student's last semester of enrollment. To assist your admissions committee in evaluating your request for reinstatement, you may be required to provide the following documentation.
Updated letters of recommendation
GRE, GMAT, or other test scores
A degree plan or outline of dates and academic goals to establish your new time to degree
International Students. For SEVIS and immigration purposes, international students considering a return to CGU are advised to use the new student application process through Admissions. For guidance, please consult with the international student coordinator.
Before You Apply. If you still have access, check your student portal or contact the Registrar's Office to determine if any there are any impediments to your return. Obstacles to your immediate return include the following.
Academic Probation. If you were on academic probation during your last semester of enrollment, you will be required to meet with your department to determine whether you are eligible to resume your studies at CGU. Review CGU's academic standards on the Satisfactory Academic Progress page.
Time to Degree. If you exceeded your time to degree during your last semester of enrollment, you will be required to determine a new graduation date and to define, with your advisor, a plan for completing degree requirements.
Other Holds. The same holds that prevent registration each semester impact your ability to apply for readmission. Your student portal or the Registrar's Office can provide information on any holds that may exist on your student record.
Application. Complete the Application for Reinstatement and submit it to the Registrar's Office, along your personal statement, and the non-refundable reinstatement fee. (See the Tuition & Fees table on the Student Accounts web page for the current fee.) The fee should be paid in cash or check.
Applications should be submitted well in advance of the semester in which you are seeking to return. This will allow sufficient time to give your request full consideration and resolve any outstanding issues that may cause delays to your reinstatement. Verify the registration and semester start dates by consulting the Academic Calendar.
Approvals. All reinstatements are approved by the department. You will be notified by the Registrar's Office once your request has been approved.
Follow Through. Once your request has been approved, be sure to register for the semester in which your student status is reactivated. Registration periods are announced by the registrar and available in the Academic Calendar. Failure to enroll before the first Add/Drop deadline of the semester will result in automatic cancellation of your student status.
