Returning Students

Students who have been absent for two semesters or more prior to the semester of return must apply for readmission, unless approved for and participating in the Planned Graduate Student Leave Program, as described in the "Graduate Enrollment Policies" section of the University Catalog.

Students who attend another institution during any absence from CSUDH must file an application for admission as a returning student and are subject to the nonrefundable application fee.

Returning students who have not maintained continuing student status or been approved for the Planned Graduate Student Leave Program will lose their catalog rights and will be subject to all requirements and regulations in the catalog of the year they are readmitted.

Students previously enrolled at the University are not required to file a new application for admission and pay an application fee unless they are absent from the University for two semesters or more, or have attended another institution during their absence.
