Readmission Following Disqualification Checklist

The College of Health and Public Affairs does not guarantee readmission and readmission is limited. In order to be considered for a Readmission Interview with Undergraduate Student Services, you must submit the following materials to go into your readmission packet. Students must contact Undergraduate Student Services to begin the process of review for support for readmission.

The Readmission Process

What to consider when seeking readmission support from the College of Health and Public Affairs:

Readmission following disqualification into a major in the College of Health and Public Affairs is a very detailed and lenghtly process that involves a formal review. When seeking the college's support for readmission, students will be reviewed for educational readiness and completion of program requirements. Before applying for readmission following disqualification, students should take a moment to review the following items which will be used in the College's review of their request:

  • Students must first apply for readmission following disqualification in the myUCF system. Review the Registrar's website at http://registrar.ucf.edu
  • Students are not eligible for readmission after being excluded from the University.
  • Students may petition for readmission following disqualification only after being gone from the university for at least two semesters. The College of Health and Public Affairs will not support early readmission for students.
  • Students are expected to have completed an A.A. degree from a Florida Public Institution if General Education Program and Gordon Rule requirements were not previously met.  In addition, students are expected to have demonstrated positive academic progress in coursework completed elsewhere; positive progress is defined by A/B grades.
  • Students seeking majors with prerequisite courses are expected to have completed all program prerequisites prior to seeking readmission.  Students seeking readmission into majors that require a minimum GPA for graduation or for continuation in the major are expected to have the minimum GPA at the time they seek support from the college.
  • Readmission support for majors listed as "limited access" may not be granted.
  • Support for readmission following disqualification is not automatic or guaranteed; therefore students are strongly encouraged to explore all possible alternatives to meet their educational goals.

Please note, that meeting the minimum criteria does not guarantee support from the College of Health and Public Affairs for readmission.

If you feel you meet these criteria and would like to begin the steps for consideration, then you must submit a Readmission Packet to the College of Health and Public Affairs.
