Readmission of Returning Texas State Students

Any Texas State student who does not enroll in the university for one long semester but wishes to return is considered a returning student. Whether the student leaves on academic or disciplinary suspension or of their own accord, he or she must follow these procedures for readmission:

  1. Submit part I of the ApplyTexas Application for Transfer/Transient/Readmit and required transcripts prior to the start of classes for the semester of desired enrollment.
  2. Submit application fee of $40 (check, money order, American Express, Visa or MasterCard).  Fee waivers based on need are available.
  3. Submit official transcripts from every institution attended since last enrolled at Texas State.
  4. Attest that no suspensions, withdrawals, or dismissals affect his or her eligibility to return to all previously attended institutions.

NOTE: Returning students who have taken 30 or more transferable hours since last enrolled must be eligible to return to all previous institutions and have a minimum GPA of 2.25 in that work.  Those who left and enrolled for fewer than 30 transferable hours at another institution must also be eligible to return to all previous institutions and have a 2.0 GPA in that work.

A student who has left Texas State due to academic suspension will return on probationary status after complying with the suspension requirements and meeting the readmission criteria outlined above. (See the policy stated in “Readmission Following Suspension” in the Academic Policies of this catalog.) Some Texas State returning students may be eligible to take advantage of our Academic Bankruptcy or Academic Fresh Start programs. See Academic Forgiveness Programs for more information.

A student who is member of the U.S. Armed Forces or National Guard who withdrew from school as a result of a call to active duty is eligible to re-enroll without paying a reapplication fee or having to complete a readmit application if the student returns to Texas State within a year of being released from active duty. These students will need to complete the Returning Military Information Form, provide a copy of their DD-214 and contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to have their status reactivated.
