Returning to the University

The UCC is often involved in the process of evaluating a student’s readiness to resume academic work after a leave of absence from the University.

The University Counseling Center (UCC) is often involved in the process of evaluating a student’s readiness to resume academic work after a leave of absence.

The documents below include the information required by the UCC in order to provide a recommendation to the appropriate person, office, or program responsible for your return. Review these documents as you begin your time away from the university to assist you and your treatment providers in planning your treatment.

Undergraduate Students

All undergraduate students are required to submit a readmission application to the Readmission Committee in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by the appropriate deadline listed on that website. In addition to this readmission application, students needing UCC clearance must submit the UCC forms listed below by the same deadline. We recommend you print the forms for completion and follow all procedures listed below.

ALL completed documentation must be received by the UCC by April 24 for consideration for the subsequent fall semester, and November 1 for consideration for the subsequent spring semester. The UCC is able to make a recommendation to the University Readmissions Committee ONLY after receiving all required materials. Incomplete applications and late forms will result in the student’s readmission being delayed. The University Readmissions Committee makes the final decision regarding any undergraduate student’s readmission.

Graduate Students

Students must notify both their program and The Graduate School of their intention to seek readmission prior to the semester in which they plan to return. The Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for the Graduate School will notify the UCC of the student’s interest in readmission. Please print and complete the required UCC readmission forms and follow all procedures listed below.

If all coursework has been completed, readmission occurs on a rolling basis throughout the year. If the graduate student is still involved in academic coursework, the deadline for receiving the completed UCC readmission materials is no later than April 24 for consideration for the subsequent fall semester or November 1 for consideration for the subsequent spring semester. The UCC will be able to make a recommendation to the Associate Deans only after receiving all required materials.

In consultation with the Associate Deans, the student’s program makes the final decision regarding the graduate student’s readmission.

Law School Students

Students must contact the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs no later than April 15 for consideration for the subsequent fall semester or by October 15 for consideration for the subsequent spring semester. Please note that readmission is not automatic.

The Law School will notify the UCC of a student’s interest in readmission. Please print and complete the required UCC readmission forms and follow all procedures listed below. 

A student’s readiness to return and resume the pressures of academic life at the Notre Dame Law School will be evaluated by the UCC and a recommendation will be provided to the Law School. The completed UCC readmission materials must be received no later than April 24 for consideration for the subsequent fall semester or November 1 for consideration for the subsequent spring semester. The UCC will be able to make a recommendation only after all required materials are received. The Law School makes the final decision regarding the student’s readmission.
