Re-Enrollment Information for UW Tacoma Returning Students 

If you were previously enrolled at UW Tacoma as an undergraduate student and wish to re-enroll, you are required to submit a Returning Student Application and pay the $60 application fee by the application deadline to be re-admitted. Students who have not been enrolled for more than one quarter (not including summer) are considered returning students.

You must return to the same academic program/major you were enrolled in when you left. If you wish to apply to another major, you may do so after readmission by submitting a change of major form. Should you apply to return and be unable to attend that quarter, you will need to re-apply for a future quarter.

Submission Deadline

Applications for re-admission are accepted up to two weeks prior to the start of the requested quarter of admission. 

Graduate students who wish to re-enroll should contact their program advisor and the Graduate School for assistance.
