Reapplying to the University as an Undergraduate

Transfer applicants denied admission for a given semester may reapply for a subsequent semester, and should present new information that demonstrates an improved academic record. Students wait-listed or denied admission previously as high school students should be working toward completion of two semesters of rigorous academic courses, at the point of applying to UVM. Anyone reapplying must submit a new application and application fee, and update any academic information. Essays may be adjusted to reflect applicant’s recent activities. These individuals should contact the admissions office to discuss academic work that would improve their chances for admission.

Deferring Enrollment

Under certain conditions, candidates offered admission who choose not to attend in a given semester can defer entry for up to two semesters with permission of the admissions office (students offered spring start admission or Catamount Advance are not eligible to defer). Students who defer admission are required to pay the acceptance fee for the semester to which they applied (an additional fee may be required) and may not enroll in another degree program at another college or university. Students who wish to defer admission for more than two semesters from the term of the original application will be asked to reapply for admission. After that period, or if the admitted candidate failed to request deferred admission, another application and fee must be filed for review by the admissions office.

Re-Entry to UVM

Students who were previously enrolled as undergraduates working toward a degree and who wish to return to the University of Vermont following a voluntary leave (including an approved medical withdrawal) should submit the online Re-entry Application available on the Admissions website. The Admissions Office does not readmit former degree-seeking students. Re-entry applications are reviewed by the Re-entry team upon submission.  Please review additional information including the college-specific requirements and email with any questions.

Students wishing to apply for re-entry following an academic dismissal or forced leave, should contact the Student Services team for their major college/school (i.e. College of Arts and Sciences, Grossman School of Business, etc.).

Students wishing to return to the University after an approved medical withdrawal must complete the medical withdrawal re-entry process. Applications following a medical withdrawal must be submitted no later than 45 days before the start of the semester.  Please contact the Assistant Dean of Students at (802) 656-3380 for additional information.

Students wishing to return to the University after a conduct suspension, should contact the Dean of Students' office at (802) 656-3380 to schedule a meeting with the Assistant Dean of Students. 

Students wishing to enroll as an undergraduate who have never been admitted as a degree-seeking student should visit the Admissions website for more information.
