Reenrollment Procedures

  • Graduate students wishing to return to the university must contact the School of Graduate Studies and Research for specific instructions.

    Undergraduate students who have withdrawn from the university, or were not enrolled during at least one of the two previous regular academic semesters, must complete an Application for Reenrollment.

    Option 1: (Academic Good Standing)

    Undergraduate students who have withdrawn from the university voluntarily or who have not been enrolled in the previous two or more regular academic semesters must submit an online application for reenrollment.

    • An application is not required for previously matriculated undergraduate students who have registered for classes in at least one of the two previous regular academic semesters. Under these circumstances, simply reenroll for courses by contacting your department for advising and an alternate PIN number.
    • Applications may be submitted up to one week prior to the start of the semester for which the student wishes to return. After processing the application, the student will be sent information regarding registration.

    Option 2:  (Not in Academic Good Standing)

    Undergraduate students not in academic good standing (regardless of whether the student was dismissed by the university or voluntarily withdrew) must submit an online application for reenrollment consideration.

    • Applications may be submitted up to two weeks prior to the start of the semester for which the student wishes to return.
    • An Academic Standards officer will review the application and make a decision on the student’s eligibility to return. If approved, the student will be sent information regarding registration.

    Option 3: (Involuntarily Withdrawn from the University)

    Undergraduate students who have been involuntarily withdrawn from the university must submit a request for reenrollment to the vice president for Student Affairs prior to completing the Application for Reenrollment.

    An application can be obtained by:

    • Log into MyIUP and click on Academics. You will find Apply for Reenrollment to IUP in the Academic Record section. Complete and submit the form. 
    • If you don’t have a MyIUP account, claim your account to get MyIUP access. (Note: If you last attended prior to fall 2000, complete a paper Application for Reenrollment.

    Students in good academic standing who reapply to IUP and wish to be admitted into the Associate of Arts in General Studies program will be automatically admitted to that program. Students not in good academic standing who reapply to IUP and wish to be admitted into the Associate of Arts in General Studies program will be referred to the Office of the Dean of the College of Education and Communications for a decision.

    If the student is seeking admission to a new college, the Academic Standards officer of the new college will consult the Academic Standards Officer of the former college before making a decision. The Office of the Registrar will officially change the major based on the officer’s reenrollment letter to the student.

    All outstanding financial obligations to the university must be met before the returning student can register. Because of enrollment restrictions, requests for reenrollment to Nursing or to the College of Fine Arts will be forwarded for approval by a representative from that department or college.

    Reenrolled students who have not been enrolled for two calendar years (24 consecutive months) or more may petition their college dean for application of the Cancelled Semester Policy, which provides for cancellation from the cumulative record of the effects of one semester below a GPA of 2.0. Students who have been separated from the university for two calendar years (24 consecutive months) may petition their college dean to return under the Fresh Start Policy. Students must pay fees and attend classes before a designated semester will be cancelled or the Fresh Start Policy will take effect. See the Academic Policies section in the Undergraduate Catalog for more information on these policies.

    Once the Application for Reenrollment has been approved, the student will be sent instructions on how and when to register.

    Students reenrolled to IUP are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine financial aid eligibility. Financial aid eligibility will be based on financial need, as determined by the FAFSA application, and on prior academic record.
