This no-fee readmission application is for eligible graduate or doctoral returning students only.

Undergraduate students wishing to be readmitted are directed to the undergraduate re-admission form



Graduate and Doctoral students who leave the university

  • without approved leave of absence for no more than one long (fall or spring) semester, or
  • with approved leave of absence for up to a full year, or
  • because of dismissal/enforced withdrawal from a program (dismissed students must wait at least one full semester before reapplying).

Students who left UIW via dismissal/enforced withdrawal are advised to show evidence of positive life change addressing their previous academic work in support of their application. Support documents frequently include a personal statement addressing what occurred previously and why the student is now better prepared for success in a graduate level academic environment.

Students who do not meet the criteria for readmission as described above must make a new application for admission to the university.


A graduate or doctoral student may appeal a readmission decision to the Dean of Research and Graduate Studies. To make an appointment, please call (210) 805-3555.
