Readmission

Readmission applies to students who have previously attended the University of Florida as degree seeking students and wish to return to complete their Bachelor’s degree. Former undergraduate students who do not enroll at the university for two consecutive terms, including any summer term, must apply for readmission. Readmission to the College of Health & Human Performance is NOT guaranteed. If you are considering readmission to the College, please review the readmission eligibility requirements below.

Readmission — Above a 2.0 UF GPA

If you left HHP on track for your major and are reapplying to the same major without having earned any additional credits at another institution, follow the readmission process outlined on the Admissions website. If a student is on track and in good standing before the absence of two or more terms, and reapplies to the same major, then readmission is generally granted.

Contact an HHP academic advisor before applying for readmission if any of the following apply:

  • If you have taken credits at another institution
  • If you plan to reapply for a different major within HHP
  • If you left UF with any incomplete grades
  • If you were off track in your major and wish to reapply to the same major.

Students readmitted to HHP who have been away from UF for longer than one calendar year will be readmitted under the catalog in effect at the time of readmission.

Readmission — Below a 2.0 UF GPA

Please contact an HHP academic advisor to discuss the likelihood of readmission to the major you desire prior to starting the readmission process. If there were any documented extenuating circumstances that affected your academic performance while at UF, you are encouraged to review the University Petition process in an effort to potentially improve your chances for readmission by reducing your deficit record.

If you left UF with 15 or fewer deficit points and have not taken additional coursework since you left UF, HHP will work with you on a case-by-case basis. However, be aware that taking classes elsewhere after leaving UF with a deficit record could jeopardize consideration for readmission since these grades do not count toward your UF gpa.

  • If you earn an AA degree from a Florida community college after leaving UF with a deficit record, you will not be eligible for readmission.
  • If you left UF with 15 or fewer deficit points (in your overall UF or upper division GPA) but were in your junior or senior year, your chances of readmission are reduced.
  • If you left UF more than 15 deficit points (in your overall UF or upper division GPA), please refer to the other “Readmission – Dismissed Students” section below.

For readmission process, review the Admissions website.

Readmission — Dismissed Students

Students who were dismissed from the University of Florida with more than 15 deficit points are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The College of Health & Human Performance does not readmit students who have been dismissed and have subsequently earned an AA degree at another institution; or students who have been dismissed after having already been readmitted once. If you fall into any of the categories above, you will need to consider other academic options (at other institutions).

If you have greater than 15 deficit points, your application will be reviewed by an academic advisor. Upon review of your application, you may be contacted by the advisor to discuss your academic plan. Your advisor will develop a readmission contract that will specify GPA and course requirements. The contract will be reviewed by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. If approved, you will be monitored every semester while on contract. Students must meet all contract conditions to be eligible to continue in HHP.

  • Students with more than 20 deficit points (overall or upper division) will not be readmitted
  • Students who are deficit must be able to realistically remove ALL deficit points within 2 semesters (summers included) (i.e. 20 credits with minimum grades of A is NOT realistic)
  • If applying to online programs, all general education and prerequisites must be completed (due to lack of online offerings)

Readmission — Fresh Start

Former undergraduate degree-seeking students who have been dismissed from UF who wish to return after an absence of no fewer than five calendar years (during which they have engaged predominantly in nonacademic activities) may petition for readmission under the Fresh Start program. HHP generally supports Fresh Start applicants who had a difficult beginning at UF rather than students who were dismissed after their junior or senior year since this is typically the time that students have the greatest transition issues (i.e. high school to college).

Students interested in the Fresh Start program should consult an academic advisor prior to completing the readmission application. Additional information about the Fresh Start program is available in the undergraduate catalog.
