Returning Student Verification
IMPORTANT: Previously matriculated degree-seeking students who are in good academic standing may request a return to the University following an absence of no longer than 4 consecutive semesters (or 2 years) without re-applying for re-admission. See Return from Educational Leave information for details. If eligible, the online Return From Educational Leave Form can be found on the Registrar's Office Forms page under the "Add, Drop, Withdraw, Repeats, and other Enrollment" section. To help facilitate a smooth return to Cal State LA, we strongly encourage you to submit the form to the Records Office as soon as possible, no later than the start of the desired returning enrollment term.
Be aware: If you have been absent from Cal State LA for one semester or less after disqualification, please meet with an advisor to complete the Undergraduate Petition for Reinstatement from Disqualification - you will only need to reapply to the University if the reinstatement is not approved. The completed reinstatement form should be emailed to the Registrar's Office ([email protected]) for processing.
Returning Transfer Students
(IMPORTANT: The Fall 2023 application deadline was December 16, 2022. However, if you would like to be considered for a late Fall 2023 application, please submit an admission appeal with a written request for late application, your desired major, and your unofficial transcripts from all other colleges attended.)
If you have been absent from Cal State LA as a regularly matriculated degree-seeking student for more than 2 years (or were academically disqualified), and you have attempted units at another college/university or through the College of Professional and Global Education (PaGE) since you left Cal State LA, you are considered a Returning Transfer Student. Please do NOT complete this eForm. You must meet regular transfer admission requirements and reapply directly via the Cal State Apply online application.
