Students who previously attended the University of Wisconsin–Madison as an undergraduate and would like to complete their first undergraduate degree will need to apply for reentry admission. Reentry students are those who have not been enrolled in courses for a semester or more. The primary admission consideration for reentry students is your academic record while previously enrolled at UW–Madison. If you are interested in returning to UW–Madison to complete your undergraduate degree, please review the following requirements and expectations for readmission.
Dates and Deadlines
To guarantee an early enrollment appointment for the term you are applying for, we encourage you to complete your reentry application by the following deadlines:
|Period||Application Open||Application Deadline||Decision Notification if NO Dean's Action|
|Fall 2017 Term||August 1, 2016||August 18, 2017||Made on a rolling basis|
|Spring 2018 Term||February 1, 2017||January 5, 2018||Made on a rolling basis|

The admissions process for reentry students is automatic, and you should be admitted right away. The only exception would be if you have been dismissed for academic or disciplinary reasons. In this case, your reentry application will be referred to the appropriate Dean's office, and they will make the final determination regarding your admission to the university. Contact your Dean to begin the process and find out more information.
