To reinstate yourself as a continuing student after an absence of one or more semesters, you will need to apply for readmission. Application materials and instructions are noted on the Office of Undergraduate Admissions website. All readmission requests require College approval. Read through the guidelines below to determine how to initiate the process for your particular circumstances.
Guidelines for Readmission
- Application approval and processing can take up to three weeks. We advise you to start the process early (as soon as February 1 for fall and September 1 for spring) in order to be on time for your Phase I Tele-BEARS appointment window. Please note: We will not approve any applications received after the application deadlines (June 1 for fall readmission and November 1 for spring readmission).
- Please review and complete the readmission checklist before submitting your application.
- For students who are in good academic standing and have no registration blocks, approval is granted upon receipt of the application. We suggest you send all readmission materials directly to the Office of Undergraduate Advising for dean's signature at the address noted below. We will then forward the paperwork to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

- If you are on academic probation, have an academic block, or have 12 or more units of outstanding Incomplete grades, you must meet with a College adviser to determine if readmission is possible. Contact our office to schedule an appointment. Bring your readmission materials to the appointment.
- Financial and medical blocks must be cleared before readmission materials may be submitted. For information on financial blocks, contact Student Billing Services; for information on medical blocks, call University Health Services (Tang Center) Social Services at 510-642-6074.
- Students who have been dismissed must submit an appeal packet to the Deans' Conference with their readmission application.
- Poor performance in UC Extension XB or XBW course work may affect your readmission status. Please check with an adviser if you have questions.
