Readmission After Active Duty

Students who must report for active duty while enrolled in a term or semester at the University of South Carolina are subject to established academic regulations when returning, but will be given every consideration for readmission in the same academic status as at the time of the withdrawal.

Students seeking readmission should refer to the procedures for readmission of former students as stated in the Undergraduate Studies Bulletin.

  • If an undergraduate student fully withdraws and remains absent for more than one major full semester, the student must apply for readmission with waiver of any application fee.
  • Graduate students who have been called to active military duty, or reassignment of duty, and do not return within four terms following their withdrawal semester should contact their academic unit regarding specific procedures for continuing their graduate degree program.

If you have recently received deployment orders as an active duty service member, reservist, or member of the National Guard and will miss a major semester, complete this form to let us know. Our Admissions office will keep you informed of any upcoming deadlines based your indicated semester of return. Upload a copy of your orders when you submit to ensure Admissions waives the readmit application fee.
