Returning Students


Thinking of returning?

We hope your time away was beneficial, growing, and well spent. Depending on your situation or level of interest in returning, please see the following.

  • ONLINE -- If you are not in the Twin Ports area, please know CAHSS currently offers only one completely online program (TAG). The majority of our degrees are delivered in-person. Your ability to complete a degree while living elsewhere may not be possible.
  • HOLDS -- If you have any holds that prevent registration (owe money, missing transcripts, or other), these holds need to resolved prior to your record being reviewed for potential re-enrollment.

CURIOUS about returning, but not 100% ready?
Complete this form if you are interested in returning to the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at UMD to complete your degree: Based on what you share, we will determine the next steps.

SERIOUS about returning, let's go!

To return to active status and be able to register for classes you must submit this form: Readmission/Return From Leave of Absence Request (One Stop form).

  • Once processed, you will receive an email message from the Office of the Registrar regarding your next steps. (i.e. updating your address, name, etc.)
  • Requests must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the start of term to allow staff time to review your record, process forms, and advise you. As the term nears, the course selection becomes more difficult.
