Returning Students

students in hallWhether you have been away for one year or twenty, you always have a home at IUPUI. If you have been out less than two semesters (with the exception of summer terms), you do not need to apply through our office. Instead, please contact your academic advisor.

Students who have not enrolled in IUPUI courses for one year or more will need to reapply. If you were a School of Science student before you left, you will be considered for re-admittance once you submit a returning student application. If you are readmitted to the School of Science and have not enrolled in IUPUI courses:

  • For less than two years, you will be readmitted under your original bulletin
  • For two or more years, you will be readmitted under the current bulletin

If you were not previously a School of Science student, you will be considered for admission to a science program based on the Internal Admissions Requirements.

Visit the Admission Office website to learn more about readmission to IUPUI.

Dismissed Students

If you were dismissed from the School of Science and would like to apply for readmission, you will need to submit a returning student application to the Enrollment Center. Once your returning student application has been received, the Enrollment Center will send you a readmission application. The readmission application gives you the opportunity to explain your previous academic challenges and your plans to improve your academics if readmitted. Re-admissions applications must be submitted by June 15 for Fall semester, October 15 for Spring semester, or March 15 for Summer sessions. 

The School of Science and your academic department will review the readmission application. You will receive notification regarding their decision via regular mail. If you are readmitted, you will be required to meet with your academic advisor and Diana Sims-Harris, Director of Student Affairs in the School of Science, ( to discuss your probation status before you are able to register for courses.
