Readmission

Oakland University is pleased that you are considering returning! Please read below to learn about the readmission application process, how to check your application status, and support services available to you. 

We can't wait to see you on campus soon!

Apply

Students should apply for readmission who have been:

  • absent from the university
    • If your first semester at OU was fall 2019 or later, you must reapply if you have been absent from the university for two or more years.
    • If your first semester at OU was prior to fall 2019, you must reapply if you have been absent from the university for six or more years.
  • dismissed for unsatisfactory academic progress

Due dates to be considered for readmission are:

  • July 1 for the fall semester
  • November 1 for the winter semester
  • March 1 for the summer semester

If you attended another school during your absence from Oakland University, you must submit an official transcript from each college or university attended.

Readmission to the university is not automatic for students dismissed because of poor academic performance. An application for a first readmission by a student who has been dismissed for insufficient academic progress is reviewed by the university’s Readmission Committee. The Academic Standing and Honors Committee will review the academic records of students applying for readmission a second or subsequent time.

If readmitted students fail to enroll for the semester or session for which their readmission is granted, that readmission is considered void. If students wish to enroll up to one year from the original term of application for which readmission was granted, they may do so with a request to update their readmission application by calling Undergraduate Admissions at (248) 370-3360. However, if such students wish to enroll for a term later than one year from the term for which they were readmitted, they must complete another readmission application and submit it by the deadlines.

Apply now
Check application status

Once your application materials are received, the Readmission Committee will make a decision within four weeks. If applying after the due date, your application will be considered for the following semester.

Students who were academically dismissed and are readmitted will be contacted by Orientation and New Student Programs to set up an appointment to review the readmission requirements. If an application is denied, the student would then be contacted by an admissions adviser.

You may also request a status check by emailing Undergraduate Admissions at oakuniv@oakland.edu or by calling (248) 370-3360.

Readmission Meeting

Students who were academically dismissed and have been successfully readmitted to OU are required to meet with a staff member from Orientation and New Student Programs (ONSP) prior to enrolling in courses.

Here is what will be discussed:

  • Review the Readmission Letter
  • Discuss campus resources
  • Answer any questions the student has about returning
  • Share next steps
  • Assist with setting up an academic advising appointment 

Note: ONSP welcomes the opportunity to meet with any student wanting to return to provide a smooth transition back to OU.
