Readmissions Information

Please be advised that students hoping to return to HSSEAS should start the below readmission process at minimum 6-8 weeks BEFORE the UCLA Readmission Applications deadlines stated below.

Step 1.

If you are former UCLA HSSEAS student who is attempting to be readmitted to UCLA, please complete the HSSEAS Readmission Review Request Form. When filling out the HSSEAS Readmission Review Request Form as well as the Undergraduate Readmission Form, please select the major that you were in prior to your leave from UCLA.  If you wish to switch majors, you must go through the Change of Major process if you are readmitted in order to be considered for the new major.  If you wish to switch to the College of Letters and Science, you must contact the department related to your desired major to obtain their readmission requirements.

The general policy for readmission consideration to HSSEAS varies depending on the circumstances for why you left HSSEAS. Please click on the below choice which most closely fits your case:

  • If you are a HSSEAS student who was was dismissed from UCLA or had been subject to dismissal  or on academic probation and hope to be readmitted back into a HSSEAS major (e.g. chemical engineering) click here
  • If you are a HSSEAS student who stopped attending UCLA while in good academic standing  and hope to be readmitted back into a HSSEAS major click here
  • If you are a HSSEAS student who wishes to return to UCLA, but to a major OUTSIDE of HSSEAS (e.g. Math) click here
  • If you are presently an active continuing UCLA students in a major outside of HSSEAS (e.g. chemistry) who wants to change majors into HSSEAS, this is NOT a readmission case, but is a change of major request, click here

 In addition to the above,

Step 2.

AFTER student completes the HSSEAS Readmission Review Request Form, expect, at minimum, a two week review period before student is provided a recommendation on how to proceed with the UCLA Undergraduate Readmission Application. After HSSEAS review, student will be notified by email if his/her readmissions request will be approved.

If a student is approved readmission by HSSEAS, and the student has not been enrolled at UCLA for 2 or more consecutive quarters, the student will further be required to file a UCLA Undergraduate Readmission Application*

Students NOT approved readmission by HSSEAS will be advised as to their options by an OASA Counselor.

Registrar’s Office Readmission Deadlines HSSEAS OASA Readmission Deadlines
Fall Quarter August 15 Fall Quarter June 1
Winter Quarter November 25 Winter Quarter October 31
Spring Quarter February 25 Spring Quarter January 25

If a deadline falls on a Saturday or Sunday, it is extended to the next business day. Enrollment begins prior to the readmission deadline which could interfere with your ability to get into the courses you need.  Please note that Fall 2017 enrollment begins on 6/20/17, Winter 2018 enrollment begins in November and Spring 2018 enrollment begins in February.  These dates all fall before the deadline to apply for readmission and you should also factor in the processing time it takes for your readmission application to be processed, which can sometimes take up to two weeks if and after you are approved.  You are not guaranteed into any of your courses once you are readmitted so the earlier you act on your readmission the better your chances are of getting the courses you need.  


If you are a HSSEAS student who was dismissed from UCLA or repeatedly in academic difficulty  and hope to return back to a HSSEAS major (e.g. chemical engineering) – please read the below.

If you are a HSSEAS student who was dismissed from UCLA or repeatedly in academic difficulty and hope to be readmitted to a HSSEAS major, then BEFORE your readmission can be considered you must have:
taken at least two terms of a full-time Engineering course load (e.g. 2 of 3 courses in the Math/Science/Engineering/Computer Science subjects) at another school/college/university other than UCLA and earned grades of “A” or “B” for consideration (unless advised otherwise by your OASA Academic Counselor). An online course will only be considered from an institution that has corresponding on-campus offerings of the same course at the same institution. Taking courses at an overseas university will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Taking at least two terms of a full-time Engineering course load for readmission purposes does not guarantee readmission; students may be required more course work beyond the minimum.  Students can either choose to do two terms of new work or three terms of remedial material.  If you have nothing new to take, you may repeat courses that you need to relearn. HOWEVER, please note that repeating a UCLA course at another school will NOT replace the UCLA grade). Application of all course evaluation results toward HSSEAS degree requirements is subject to UC transferability requirements. Courses taken at accredited schools with content that is consistent with that which is offered at UCLA are typically acepted as UC-transferable.

Once your grades for the courses you took have all been posted, please submit your official transcripts for all coursework to:

Note: After completing 75 semester units/ 105 quarter units toward the degree in all institutions attended, students are allowed no further unit credit for courses completed at a community college or for lower division courses completed at any institution outside of the University of California.” However, if you want to review lower division course material it may beneficial for you to take these courses at a community college, but understand that credit will not transfer to UCLA and you are only doing so for material review – if you are considering this consult with an OASA Counselor before doing so.  You would also need to take additional courses at a 4 yr school (e.g. Cal State) for readmission consideration.

If you have less than 105 units, you may be able to attend a community college to take courses for readmission. Refer to assist http://www.assist.org/web-assist/welcome.html

If you are a HSSEAS student who was not in good academic standing when you last attended UCLA, but were NOT dismissed nor in repeatedly academic difficulty, please complete the HSSEAS Readmission Review Request Form and then your records will be reviewed to determine readmissions eligibility.  Please note that if you were a student who was subject to dismissal when last enrolled at HSSEAS  you may be required to take course work at another school before readmissions is considered.


If you are a HSSEAS student who stopped attending UCLA while in good academic standing – please read the following:

If you are a HSSEAS student who stopped attending UCLA while in good academic standing, it may be possible that you will be considered for readmission without being required to take course work at another school. This is subject to review of your records by HSSEAS OASA.
