Reentry Admission

Reentry or return to active status for the College of Arts & Sciences is handled through the Office of Graduate Services.

A continuing student is subject to reentry if he or she meets any one of the following criteria:

  • has not registered for courses at Georgia State during any of the previous three semesters;
  • has not registered for six or more credit hours for the current and the preceding two terms (see the Continuous Enrollment policy);
  • has been on scholastic suspension after an absence of one calendar year;
  • has been on scholastic exclusions after an absence of five or more years.

The College of Arts & Sciences does not allow transient graduate students to reenter.

Reentry Requirements

The Reentry Application is available online. Once the Office of Graduate Services receives your application and the $25.00 fee you will be contacted by an academic advisor.  Reentry is only valid for the term in which you are approved.

Students who have attended other colleges and/or universities since last registering at Georgia State must send official transcripts of all coursework taken to the Office of Graduate Services prior to the reentry deadline for the appropriate semester.
