A traditional student in academic good standing who withdraws from the University for one or more quarters (except summer session) but fewer than five calendar years must submit an Application for Re-Entry to the Center for Academic and Career Development and official transcripts of any college study completed during the time of absence to the Registrar’s Office.
Colorado Women's College must contact Colorado Women's College Student Support Services for information on re-entry. Traditional bachelor's program students who have not been enrolled at the University for more than five calendar years from their last term of enrollment must reapply for admission to the University through the Office of Undergraduate Admission. University College students must contact the University College Student Support Center for information on re-entry. Students who are accepted for readmission may choose to complete their degree under the requirements of their original DU bulletin or the current bulletin.
Leave of Absence Program
The DU Leave of Absence Program allows students to take a leave of absence for up to one academic year. By enrolling in the program, students officially withdraw from the University. However, if students return within four academic quarters, they are readmitted and allowed to register for classes during priority registration. One quarter before the scheduled return, registration materials are emailed to the email address specified on the leave of absence application. The forms for traditional undergraduates are obtained from Academic Advising or online at www.du.edu/studentlife/advising. Students who wish to go on leave during a quarter in which they are enrolled must contact the Office of the Registrar to drop their classes. University College students must contact the University College Student Support Center for information on Leave of Absence and re-entry.
