Returning UW Student Re-Enrollment

The Undergraduate Evening Degree Completion program is discontinuing four of its majors – communication, English, humanities and social sciences. Evening Degree students who were previously enrolled in the program may be able to re-enroll to finish their degree. Please contact advising to discuss your individual situation and timeline for possibly completing your requirements.

To qualify to apply, you must have completed at least 75 quarter credits. You must also be interested in pursuing one of the five majors offered by the program: communication, English, health informatics and health information management, humanities or social sciences. New admissions to the humanities major have been suspended. However, if you were a former Evening Degree humanities major and apply for re-enrollment, if admitted you will be able to continue your work in the major.

Application Review Process

Readmission is granted at the discretion of the University. Factors which may be considered when determining eligibility for readmission include, but are not limited to, registration or transcript holds, previous academic achievement, length of absence, activities during the period when you were not enrolled and prior disciplinary action.
