Past Applicants Overview

I received a reenrollment decision for a previous semester

Many times the Faculty Petition Board requires reinstatement applicants to enroll at another institution and earn a minimum GPA/credit level before returning to the University. If you have received such a decision in the past, you can return to the University once you have done the following two things:

  1. Complete the steps on the left to submit a new application for reinstatement.
  2. Submit official transcripts showing that you have completed the requirements of your past decision to: Student Success Office. 0110 Hornbake Library, South Wing. University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742

The Faculty Petition Board also sometimes requires reinstatement applicants to take a semester break from the University and submit a signed graduation plan before returning to the University. If you have received such a decision in the past, you can return to the University once you have done the following two things:

  1. Complete the steps on the left to submit a new application for reinstatement.
  2. Submit a graduation plan that is signed by a college advisor, not a department advisor, to the Student Success Office via email (rr-admit@umd.edu) or fax (301.405.8635).

I want to appeal my reenrollment decision for the current semester

If you have new information that you did not include in your original reenrollment application, or if your circumstances have changed since you submitted your original reenrollment application, you may appeal your original reenrollment decision. Please note that your appeal should include any additional information that was not included in your original reenrollment application.

Also note that you can only appeal a decision for the current/upcoming semester. For example, if you were denied reenrollment for the Fall 2013 semester, you cannot appeal that decision during the Spring 2014 semester, but must submit a new reenrollment application instead.

To submit your appeal, please email a brief, one-page letter of appeal to
rr-admit@umd.edu. Be sure to specify in your email that you would like to appeal your reenrollment decision.
