Readmission after Disqualification from UC San Diego

Many factors contribute to poor academic performance. It is critical that you examine the issues affecting your performance and make realistic choices about how to continue your education here at UC San Diego or at another institution. It is also important to remember that readmission to UC San Diego may be neither the best nor the only option for every student who seeks a bachelor's degree.

The intent of this website is not to replace an advising appointment.  Before attempting any readmission coursework, you must consult with your college advising office to confirm your readmission conditions.

Guidelines for Standard Readmission

Standard readmission guidelines require a student to complete readmission coursework. International students:  Please consult with your college advising office and the International Students and Programs Office (ISPO) before choosing which option is best for you.   The second grid below briefly outlines requirements and restrictions associated with readmission work.
