Former UCSC Student

You are a Former UCSC student if you: 

Were admitted to and attended UCSC in the past, but did not graduate, for example:

  • You withdrew
  • You took a leave of absence and did not return
  • You are/were barred or disqualified 

Follow these steps to apply for readmission:

  1. Submit an application for readmission before June 1. The $70 processing fee will be posted to your student account. If you have questions about your readmission, contact an adviser at your college
  2. Once your readmission is approved, your college and the registrar will activate your summer term.
  3. Browse our course listings for classes, gen eds, and sessions. Use Class Search to see all course details like days/times, instructor, prerequisites, gen-eds, and seats available. Enroll in your portal.

Additional Scenarios: 

  • If you are ineligible to be readmitted for summer, please complete our summer registration form.  We will activate you for summer enrollment. Then work with your College Adviser to apply for readmission to fall.
  • If you are ineligible to be readmitted for fall, please complete our summer registration form.  We will activate you for summer enrollment.
  • If you have never been admitted to UCSC and just want to enroll in summer courses, register through our visiting student page.


  • If you have a "hold" on your account from past activity (past due bill, judicial, undeclared), that hold will remain until it is resolved. Completing the Summer Session registration process will not remove your hold.
