Are you eligible for readmission?

To be eligible for readmission, you must meet the following criteria:

1. Be in good academic standing (you must have left UCI with a 2.0 cumulative GPA)

2. Still be within your allotted 12 quarters if you started as a freshmen or 9 quarters if you started as a transfer student

3. If you are coming in or left as an Undeclared major, you must still be on track to declare a major before the start of your seventh quarter

4. If you have a Physical Sciences major declared, you must be making normal progress toward that degree and can graduate on time

NOTE: Any UCI student who has been gone for more than 12 months COULD be held to any new or additional degree requirements.

*Good Academic standing is when a student's cumulative (overall) and current (most recent term) grade point averages are 2.0 or better, that student is in good academic standing.*

**If you were a Physical Sciences student when you left UCI, and were on Academic Probation or Subject to Disqualification status, your academic standing will be evaluated as part of the readmission application process.**


If your cumulative GPA is below a 2.0:

You may not be eligible for readmission and you may need to take courses at UCI through UCI Concurrent Enrollment or Summer Session to bring up your GPA to the required 2.0.
