Readmission Process for Undergraduate Students

There are two categories of Undergraduate student who will need to complete the readmission process:

  1. Student who were previously enrolled in courses at UM and withdrew after the first day of class but prior to grades (including Ws) posting.
  2. Students who previously completed at least one semester at UM but have not attended the University for at least one major semester (Fall or Spring).

A student who withdrew from the previous semester and received at least one W grade, does not have to go through readmission. The student should contact Canes Central to create a case to request term activation.

 Readmission Application

The deadline for readmission is two weeks before the beginning of classes of the semester they wish to re-enroll. Please refer to the "Deadline for Readmission" date on the Academic Calendar of the semester applying for.

Readmission Process

  1. Submit a completed Readmission Application.
  2. The Readmission Application fee of $100.00 is a non-refundable, and it will be charged to your credit card within the application request.
  3. The Dean of School/College will evaluate and determine the students’ readmission eligibility. The results of their decision will be displayed in the Readmission application.
  4. After the school has submitted their decision the Enrollment Service team will complete the readmission in CaneLink and also in the Readmission application.
  5. The student will be notified.
  6. Once the student receives the confirmation, they can enroll in CaneLink or work with their academic advisor to enroll.

Please note: 

Readmission to the University is contingent upon approval of the Dean of the School/College the student is applying to and clearance from the Office of Student Account Services.

International students: Your Form I-20 and F-1 visa are no longer valid if you have withdrawn from the University. In order to enter the U.S. in F-1 status to resume your studies at the University of Miami, you must request a new Form I-20 from the Department of International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) at, pay the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) I-901 Fee, and obtain an F-1 visa prior to entering the US up to (but no earlier than) 30 days before, but no later than the program start date indicated on your I-20. Please click here for more information.

Students who have attended another college or university since they were last enrolled at the University of Miami will be required to provide a transcript of their credits. Failure to disclose all prior institutions attended may result in disciplinary action.

An undergraduate student, who has applied to graduate school for a given semester, will not be eligible to register for any subsequent semester until the student applies for readmission or admission to a new program. A candidate for graduation may wish to continue his/her studies in one of the following situations:

  • If the student fails to graduate and further registration is needed, they must delete their application for graduation in CaneLink. Once the application for graduation is deleted access to register for subsequent semesters or sessions should become available with 24-hours. Students should contact Canes Central for assistance.
  • If the student graduates and wishes to pursue a second bachelor’s degree, the student must apply for readmission, stating his/her new degree objective. 
  • If the student graduates and wishes to take additional course work without a degree objective, the student must apply for unclassified status.
  • Proof of immunization must be provided to the Student Health Service before readmission to the University of Miami. Failure to do so may prevent you from registering for classes.

Readmission Process for Graduate Students

The readmission process for graduate students differs from the readmission process for undergraduate students. Students seeking readmission to a graduate program must adhere to the readmission policy posted in the Academic Bulletin.  Students are encouraged to contact the Graduate School for questions and guidance on the readmission policy and process.
