Returning Student Admissions


Do I Need to Re-Apply?

Finish Your Degree

You took a break from the University of Arizona, and you’re ready to finish what you started. Re-enroll, return, and continue your education. You are considered a returning student if you attended the University of Arizona as a degree-seeking student in the past, and missed one semester or longer without receiving a formal leave of absence. 

You may not need to apply for readmission. Explore the Back2UA program, which allows students to re-enroll at the University of Arizona without submitting a new application.
