Former Student Types

Former UGA undergraduates
Former UGA undergraduates are any students who have been enrolled previously at the University of Georgia as an undergraduate. 
Former UGA transient students
Students previously enrolled at UGA only as transients. These students must apply through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and meet UGA transfer admission requirements to become regular (i.e., UGA degree-eligible) transfer students.
Former graduate students
Students who attended UGA only as a graduate student and who wish to continue enrollment in graduate courses should contact Graduate Admissions.

Students who attended UGA only as a graduate student and who now wish to attend UGA as an undergraduate student must apply for admission through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Readmission Information for Former UGA Undergraduates

Application Dates/Deadlines

Application deadline is one business week before the first day of class for the application term

Applications are open one term prior to the application term.
Readmission is only required for former UGA undergraduates who have not been enrolled for three consecutive terms (including summer term) and those who graduated before declaring an additional major.
Readmission after dismissal
The readmission process for seeking readmission following dismissal from UGA is two-fold.
The student must:
  1. Contact the dean’s office of the college or school at UGA in which you were last enrolled.
  2. Submit a former student application before the deadline of the desired term of reenrollment; application may be submitted before the dismissal is cleared.
Note: Dismissal clearance means you are cleared to apply for readmissions, not that a student is automatically reenrolled following the clearance.
Readmission application
Former UGA undergraduates reapply for admission through Athena, UGA’s student information system. A UGA MyID and password is required to complete the readmission application. If you do not know your MyID, need password assistance, or do not have a MyID, please call the EITS Help Desk at 706-542-3106. 
To reapply, go to Athena and click Former UGA Undergraduate Application. Web applications are encrypted by our secure server before being transmitted over the Internet in order to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information.
If you do not plan to attend UGA during the term in which you are accepted, you will need to reapply for the desired term.
