Students who have voluntarily interrupted their university work and who were in good academic standing at the time of last attendance may apply for re-entry. Any financial obligations must be settled prior to registering for any classes.


1. Submit the UW System application to be considered for re-entry. Please include a valid email address. The $25 application fee is waived for re-entry students, so please do not pay this upon application submission.

2. Students who have attended other institutions since their last attendance at UW-River Falls must have official transcripts sent to the Admissions Office (103 David Rodli Hall, River Falls, WI 54022).  

3. To be readmitted to UWRF, students must be in good standing and eligible to return to the institution(s) last attended.

Suspended Students

Undergraduate students who were suspended from the University and are now seeking to be considered for re-entry must complete the re-entry application no later than August 15 for the fall semester or 10 days prior to the start of the spring semester. Re-entry applications for undergraduate students who were previously suspended will be reviewed on an individual basis to determine each student's eligibility for re-entry.

Academic Forgiveness Policy

Students may apply for Academic Forgiveness at the time of re-entry if they have not been enrolled in ANY institution of higher learning for at least five continuous years prior to readmission. Through the Academic Forgiveness Policy, UW-River Falls provides an opportunity for the calculation of a new grade point average for all subsequent coursework. To be considered, the student must first complete the re-entry application. Once the student has applied for re-entry, the student will take the completed Academic Forgiveness Application to the Dean of their College, for the major they wish to re-enter, for consideration. If approved, the Dean will forward the application to the Registrar's Office.
