Returning (Readmit) Students

Who is a Returning (Readmit) Student?

Returning students, sometimes referred to as former students or readmits, are students who have previously attended Texas State and want to return to campus to continue their studies after having been away for at least one long semester.

Returning students must re-apply for admission.  For guidance on how to re-apply, including deadlines, refer to the steps below.

If you were asked to leave due to academic suspension, you may return after complying with the terms of the university’s suspension policy and by following the re-admission criteria outlined below.

If you left Texas State for personal reasons, and were gone for one long semester or more, you may return by following the re-admission steps outlined below.

Returning students who are members of the U.S. Armed Forces or National Guard and withdrew from school as a result of a call to active duty are eligible to return without paying the application fee, if you return to Texas State within a year of being released from active duty. Please submit the Returning Military Information Form along with the DD-214 form with release information or a letter from the Commander with release information.

If you are a graduate student, please contact the Graduate College.
