Reinstatement, sometimes referred to as readmission, is the process of returning to CGU to resume your studies. Reinstatement is limited to the degree program in which you were previously enrolled at CGU. Former students who wish to pursue a new degree must submit a complete application through Admissions.
Consideration for reinstatement involves a review of your student record and an evaluation of your academic progress to degree. At the discretion of your program, you may be required to enroll in additional courses and/or complete additional degree requirements in order to qualify for your degree. This review is necessary to ensure the relevancy of your academic work for your new anticipated degree date.
CGU students are eligible for reinstatement if all of the following qualifications are met:
Note that except for your official transcript, CGU retains student files for a period of only five years following a student's last semester of enrollment. If the last semester of enrollment for you was five or more years ago, a new application through the Admissions Office is required.
To assist your academic department in evaluating your request for reinstatement, you may be required to provide the following documentation:
International Students: For SEVIS and immigration purposes, international students considering a return to CGU are advised to use the new student application process through Admissions. For guidance, please consult with the Office of International Students & Scholars Services.
Before You Apply: If you still have access, check your MyCGU portal or contact the Registrar's Office to determine if any there are any impediments to your return. Obstacles to your immediate return include the following.
Application: Complete the Application for Reinstatement (found on the Registrar's Form Index) and submit it to the Registrar's Office, along with your personal statement, and the non-refundable reinstatement fee. (See the Tuition & Fees table on the Student Accounts web page for the current fee.) The fee should be paid in cash or check.
Applications should be submitted well in advance of the semester in which you are seeking to return. This will allow sufficient time to give your request full consideration and resolve any outstanding issues that may cause delays to your reinstatement. Verify the registration and semester start dates by consulting the Academic Calendar.
Approvals: All reinstatements are approved by the department. You will be notified by the Registrar's Office once your request has been approved.
Follow Through: Once your request has been approved, be sure to register for the semester in which your student status is reactivated. Registration periods are announced and available in the Academic Calendar. Failure to enroll before the first Add/Drop deadline of the semester will result in automatic cancellation of your student status.
