1130 Re-entry Applicants

Return to: 1100 Graduate Admissions  

1130.10 Definition

A graduate re-entry applicant is a student who previously enrolled at Georgia State University and who wishes to re-enroll in the same graduate program for one of the following reasons:

The student is on inactive status as a result of three or more semesters of non-registration.

The student has received a registration hold due to violation of the continuous enrollment policy (see 1312.40 University Policy on Continuous Enrollment  for additional details regarding the continuous enrollment policy).

Students that have only attended Georgia State University at the graduate level cannot apply for re-entry to enroll at the undergraduate level. Graduate students wishing to enroll at the undergraduate level should complete a new application for undergraduate admission and submit the appropriate application fee and all transcripts to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Students should refer to the appropriate area of 1100 Graduate Admissions  for deadlines, admission requirements and other policies related to transfer, transient and postbaccalaureate admission.

All re-entry applicants must notify the university if any of the following conditions apply:

  • The student has attended another school since last attending Georgia State University.
  • The student has disciplinary actions pending at the last institution attended since matriculation at Georgia State.
  • The student has been convicted of a crime other than a minor traffic violation since last attending Georgia State.
  • Failure to notify the university of the above conditions could result in university sanctions, including expulsion.

1130.20 Deadlines

Applications for re-entry admission and the nonrefundable re-entry application fee must be submitted by the deadlines established by the college to which the student wishes to return. Students should visit the website for their college’s Office of Academic Assistance/Office of Graduate Services/Office of Graduate Recruiting & Student Services to access the specific deadlines and to download the complete re-entry application. Students who have attended other colleges and/or universities since last registering at Georgia State must have official transcripts of all coursework submitted prior to their college’s re-entry deadline for the appropriate semester.
