Returning Students

If you plan to return to the University after an absence, there are specific steps to follow before you can register for classes. Find the appropriate information for your situation below:

If you have taken an approved leave of absence, you need to notify the Carlson School of Management of your intent to return by completing the following steps:

  1. Complete the online Return to the University of Minnesota form
  2. Additionally, it is recommended that you meet with your assigned academic advisor. Please contact the Carlson School Undergraduate Program at advisbsb@umn.edu or 612-624-3313 to make an appointment.
    1. For Spring registration, schedule an appointment by early November. For Fall registration, schedule an appointment by early April. If you decide to return during or after registration for the following semester, you may still be readmitted. However, class options will be limited at that time. Your advisor will help you plan accordingly. 

Students who have not been granted a formal leave of absence and who do not register for one or more semesters, excluding summer, will be placed on inactive status. If you wish to resume coursework after being placed on inactive status, you will need to complete the following steps: 

  1. Complete the online Return to the University of Minnesota form
  2. Additionally, it is recommended that you meet with your assigned academic advisor. Please contact the Carlson School Undergraduate Program at advisbsb@umn.edu or 612-624-3313 to make an appointment.
    1. For Spring registration, schedule an appointment by early November. For Fall registration, schedule an appointment by early April. If you decide to return during or after registration for the following semester, you may still be readmitted. However, class options will be limited at that time. Your advisor will help you plan accordingly. 

 

Carlson School students who have graduated, but now want to complete an additional major or minor, or pursue another Carlson School major or minor, should contact the Undergraduate Program at advisbsb@umn.edu to get re-enrolled.

Students who have already completed an undergraduate degree generally do not qualify for financial aid. Contact a One Stop Student Services representative with any financial aid questions.

Once completed, please contact the Carlson School Undergraduate Program office to have this major and/or minor added to your University of Minnesota transcript; you will not receive an additional diploma.

Students who wish to complete an additional major, minor, or degree outside of Carlson School should contact the college offering that program directly.

If you have been placed on academic suspension and wish to request readmission into the Carlson School of Management, you may do so near the end of your one‐year (two semesters) academic suspension term.

To request readmission after academic suspension, please follow these steps: 

  1. Begin the readmission process by meeting with your assigned Academic Advisor. Please contact the Carlson School Undergraduate Program at advisbsb@umn.edu or 612-624-3313 to make an appointment.
    1. For Spring registration, schedule an appointment by early November. For Fall registration, schedule an appointment by early April. If you decide to return during or after registration for the following semester, you may still be readmitted. However, class options will be limited at that time. Your advisor will help you plan accordingly. 
  2. Complete the online Return to the University of Minnesota form. Please indicate the semester you wish to be reinstated for admission.
  3. You will be asked the following questions:
    1. Explain the factors that lead to your academic suspension. What is different now? What improvements have you made that make you better prepared to handle the rigors of academic life, in addition to other responsibilities and distractions?
    2. What strategies are you using to manage the issues that contributed to academic suspension? How do you plan to maintain these strategies when you return to school?
    3. What is your academic plan when you return? Do you have an intended major? Do you need more time and resources to explore? Please note if you intend to transfer to another school or college within the University of Minnesota.
    4. If your suspension was related to a health concern (i.e. disability, mental or physical health concern), please include medical documentation from your healthcare provider. You can consult the Disability Resource Center for more information. Email drc@umn.edu or call 612-626-1333.
  4. List any courses you enrolled in and completed at a different institution and the corresponding grade. Send an official copy of your transcripts to the admissions@umn.edu. We discourage students on academic suspension from taking academic courses elsewhere. In rare circumstances, the Scholastic Committee may consider courses taken and grades earned during the suspension.
  5. Decisions will be sent via email to the address stated on your Return to the University form within 2‐3 weeks of receiving your information. If approved, you will be readmitted under an academic probation contract. Your Academic Advisor will more thoroughly explain the nature of your probation when you meet prior to the semester.
