Restart your UB Degree.
We get it. Life happens, and finishing your degree isn't always the highest priority. That's why we try to make it easy for you to return. Meet our admissions team, who are here to assist you on the next step in this process.
First-time Undergraduate Students (29 or less credits)
Please consult our Freshmen Admission team to review your case.
Transfer Students (30 or more credits) and Graduate Students
You'll need to reapply if you were admitted and did not enroll in classes OR if you were previously enrolled and haven't registered for classes for more than two consecutive semesters (not including summer). The exception is students who have been granted an official leave of absence in advance.
You must have been in good academic standing - 2.0 GPA for Transfer and 3.0 GPA for Graduate - when you left UB, and in any coursework you have taken since leaving. If you were not in good academic standing, please submit an essay that answers the question, "What has changed, or what will you do differently this time to succeed at UB?" (Essays can be send to email@example.com; make sure to include your name and UB ID number).
To reapply for admission, submit:
- a new admission application
- an application fee (which can be waived by speaking with an admission counselor)
- Transcripts (from all institutions attended since leaving UB. If you have attended school elsewhere, those official transcripts must be provided).
- An Admission Counselor will review your application, and may reach out to you to ask questions, before making a decision.
- For Undergraduate Transfer Students: Your previously transferred credits and your coursework at UB will be re-evaluated based on any new degree requirements. Students need to meet GPA requirements for readmission into certain programs.
- For Graduate Students: A program faculty member will review your complete file, and make an admission decision. Additional materials may be requested.
- You may qualify for a scholarship, but they are not guaranteed.
- A student must not carry a financial balance with the University. The balance must be paid off through the Office of the Bursar and must be cleared before an admission decision can be rendered.
- If you did not leave in good academic standing (probation, warning or dismissal), your application will be reviewed by a faculty member or academic liaison; that person will determine if you are eligible to return. Applicants in this category must apply no later than two weeks prior to the beginning of the semester.
- Each student will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
Military StudentsThe University of Baltimore follows federal policy when a service member must withdraw from classes and wishes to be readmitted to the school. The policy is detailed in Chapter 3, Volume 2 of The Federal Student Aid Handbook. Please contact our the Bob Parsons Veterans Center for more information and assistance.
