Welcome back. We're so glad you've decided to return to University of Maryland Global Campus. There are a few special requirements for former students to re-enroll, so please take a look at the guidelines below.
Students Seeking Readmission
If it has been more than two years since your last registration at UMGC, you must complete a new application for admission. If you were previously an undergraduate student and are enrolling as an undergraduate student again, you will not be required to pay another application fee. Likewise, if you were previously a graduate student and are enrolling as a graduate student again, you will not be required to pay another application fee. However, if you graduated from a UMGC undergraduate program and are enrolling as a graduate student, you are required to pay an application fee.
If you attended UMGC Asia or UMGC Europe within the past two years, please visit your online student account to complete a relocation form in your student account instead of submitting an application for admission.
If you are a servicemember who discontinued studies with UMGC due to service obligations and would now like to return as a UMGC student, please contact email@example.com or 877-275-8682 so that we can help you continue with your studies. For more information, please see UMGC Policy 210.12: Readmission for Military Servicemembers and the Department of Education's policy on readmission for servicemembers.
If you are returning to UMGC after more than two years since your last registration, you may need to update your military documentation to ensure that you receive the reduced rate for eligible military servicemembers, spouses, and dependent children. Documentation must meet certain criteria, including the current military service expiration date for the servicemember or sponsor.

Previously Dismissed Undergraduate Students
Dismissed from Another Institution
A suspension or expulsion from another institution may affect your eligibility for admission. Please see our Undergraduate Admission Policy for more details.
Dismissed from UMGC
If you were dismissed from UMGC and you would like to be readmitted, you must first petition for reinstatement, then reapply.
If you were dismissed from UMGC for academic reasons, see the undergraduate catalog for information on the reinstatement process.
- Wait at least one semester before petitioning for reinstatement
- Have all official transcripts from previously attended colleges and universities sent to UMGC, preferably before requesting reinstatement
- Requests should be made through to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadlines for Reinstatement
- Fall enrollment: July 15
- Spring enrollment: November 15
- Summer enrollment: April 15
Students must contact the Center for Student Success by e-mail email@example.com prior to the deadlines for further instructions. After your petition has been reviewed, you will receive a written response.
For more information regarding the reinstatement policy, visit academic policies in the Administration section. Please keep in mind that reinstatement is not guaranteed, nor can you be guaranteed reinstatement in time to register for any particular semester. Students who have not been reinstated cannot be re-admitted to the university.
Previously Dismissed Graduate Students
If you were dismissed from a graduate program, please see the graduate reinstatement policy in the Administration section. If you were previously dismissed from an undergraduate program and have since completed a regionally accredited bachelor's degree program, you are eligible for re-admission.
If you've graduated from UMGC with a certificate, associate's degree, bachelor's degree, or master's degree, you may be eligible for further credentials that will save time and money. You can turn a certificate into a degree, an associate's into a bachelor's, or a bachelor's into a master's. If you graduated with a bachelor's degree and are pursuing a graduate program, you must apply for admission to the graduate program.
