Former Returning Students in Good Standing

Former returning students in good standing are considered students who completed their last quarter at Cal Poly with GPA’s above a 2.0 and have no registration holds due to academic probation or administrative probation. These students will be accepted back to their former majors upon completion of a readmission application.

Former returning students must submit an application form to the Admissions Office. The paper application can be found at https://admissions.calpoly.edu/applicants/returning or at the Cal Poly Admissions Office (Building 1, Room 206).  The readmission deadlines to return to the same major are:

  • Summer Quarter: closed
  • Fall Quarter: July 1st
  • Winter Quarter: October 1st
  • Spring Quarter: February 1st

Former returning students in good standing can choose to apply to a different major at Cal Poly, yet they will compete for a slot as a new transfer student within the new major. They will be required to meet the transfer requirements listed on http://admissions.calpoly.edu and must submit an application by the deadlines posted on the Admissions website.
