I Was on Academic Probation

If you left the University while placed on academic probation and one or more semesters have passed since you last registered for courses, you must apply and be approved for readmission before returning.

Please visit your student account to determine if you have any registration blocks. Your application cannot move forward in the review process if you have a judicial or financial block. Contact the Division of Information Technology if your password has expired.

Judicial Blocks

If you have a judicial ineligibility block, or if you answered yes to a question in the Character and Conduct section on the reenrollment application, please visit the Office of Student Conduct website for instructions on obtaining judicial clearance. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate this process by completing the Social Clearance form found on the Office of Student Conduct website. Students must attach the necessary documentation for both past disciplinary and past criminal history, as outlined in the Social Clearance form.

Financial Blocks

If you have a financial ineligibility block, please contact the Office of the Bursar to obtain a financial clearance slip. Please submit the original clearance slip from the Office of the Bursar to the following address: 0110 Hornbake Library South, College Park, MD 20742.

All degree-seeking students at the University of Maryland are expected to make progress toward earning their degrees. The Student Academic Success-Degree Completion Policy establishes a structured framework and criteria to guide all students to completion of an undergraduate degree within a reasonable period of time. If a reinstated student is not making progress set forth in the policy or has violated the repeat policy, he or she may be required to select a new major before being approved for reinstatement.

Returning to Your Previous Major

The Student Success Office will contact the college offering your desired major to determine your eligibility to return to the major. You may receive notice that you must change your major if you have not met benchmarks or LEP gateway courses or you have violated the repeat policy. These students will not be reenrolled until they have met with an academic advisor from a different major and developed a new graduation/four-year plan.

Changing Your Major

If you need to complete a major change please be aware that this can take several weeks to process; this does not need to be done before you apply, but you may want to start the process as soon as possible. As each major has unique requirements (typically outlined on the department's website) we suggest you start this process early so we can review your application in a timely manner. Please note that approval to change your major does NOT guarantee your ability to return to the University.

Limited Enrollment Programs

If you want to change your major to one of the following programs, the Student Success Office will contact the LEP Admissions office to verify your eligibility. Please note that you will need to meet the LEP requirements and may be required to complete a separate application.

All Other Majors

You can view a list of majors on the UMD website.

If you want to change your major to a program not listed above, you must submit proof that you have permission to change your major. To do so, please have an
academic advisor from your desired college do the following two things:

  1. Send an email to rr-admit@umd.edu granting you permission to change your major.
  2. Add a note to the Student Information System (SIS) granting you permission to change your major.

Transcripts

All applicants must submit official transcripts for any post-secondary institutions of higher education that they have attended since last enrolled at the University. Please submit the transcripts to: Student Success Office, 0110 Hornbake Library, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742.

International Students

International students wishing to return to the University of Maryland in F-1 or J-1 status should contact Katrina Knudsen (knudsenk@umd.edu) in the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) office for instructions about the required documentation for the creation of an I-20 or DS-2019 document.
