Permit to Re-enroll
To define how and when a degree-seeking student is permitted to re-enroll in graduate study at the University of Kansas.
All Lawrence/Edwards Campus graduate students
A student who has been actively enrolled in a degree-, certificate-, or non-degree-seeking graduate program but who has not been enrolled for one academic year (three consecutive semesters, including the summer semester) or less, may be eligible to use the Permit to Re-Enroll form with the consent of the student's department or program.
A student who has been actively enrolled in a degree-, certificate-, or non-degree-seeking program and has not enrolled for four or more consecutive semesters (including summers) without an approved Leave of Absence is not eligible to use the Permit to Re-Enroll form and must re-apply for Graduate admission.
The Permit to Re-Enroll form is not available to a student who:
- was dismissed from a program at KU;
- was voluntarily discontinued (formally withdrew) from a graduate program;
- completed the graduate degree program; or
- most recently enrolled as a general non-degree seeking graduate student without a program or school-level affiliation.
Before completing the Permit to Re-Enroll form, students should contact their graduate program directly to confirm that the program uses the permit.
Students returning from an approved Leave of Absence will be returned from leave by their department. These students are not required to use the Permit to Re-Enroll.
This policy codifies the practices that have been in place at the University of Kansas for a number of years.
