Returning Students

Information for students who were once enrolled at Penn State and wish to return to the University.

Returning to Penn State

We are so happy you want to come back to Penn State and continue your studies! Your student status at the time you left the University will determine the next steps you need to take in order to re-enroll. 

Re-enrolling Students who were in Degree Status

Students who previously attended Penn State and were in a degree program at the time of last enrollment, or students who want to return to complete a second undergraduate degree, need to contact the Office of the University Registrar to request to be re-enrolled. We look forward to having you back at Penn State.

Provisional Students

Students who were last enrolled as a degree-seeking provisional student at the time they left the University must submit the Provisional Reentry Form (PDF).

For more information about your provisional status, please see our requirements for provisional students.
